Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar asks a Supplementary Question on import of onions
Wholesale price inflation rose to 3.93 per cent last month, mostly due to rise in onion and tomato prices, among other vegetables, with a rise up to 59.8 per cent. But onion was the highest at 178.19 per cent price rise.
Hon Madam, the Minister has said that he cannot control the prices and also restricted export of onions. My question is whether onion is being imported or brought from outside. What quantity of onions is being bought at what price and from which country?
