Discussion on spiralling onion price rocks Assembly once again as Opposition demands supply through fair price shops in the State
Kerala Hotel and Restaurants Association said the price of food products cannot be increased as the ongoing economic slowdown has already impacted people's spending habits, especially outdoor dining.
While the district is receiving 200 quintals every day, the Maharashtra variety of onions remained unavailable with the stock from Kurnool getting sold out by mid-day.
The chief minister was quoted as saying earlier that the Centre had stopped supply of onions to the city at controlled rates at a time when the retail price of the bulb has touched `100 per kg.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary R K Tiwari has asked all District Magistrates to open such outlets at the earliest. These outlets will also be opened at Mandi Parishad offices.
