Agriculture ministry approves onion import from Monday
The Agriculture Ministry will give approval for onion import from Monday as the kitchen item's price rose unusually.
The ministry said this in a handout on Sunday.
The handout said the Agriculture Ministry has decided to give approval for importing onion from tomorrow (Monday) for the interest of all consumers, in particular, to ease the hardship of the low-income and working people they face due to abnormal increases in the price of the essential ingredient.
The decision came when some dishonest businesses make the onion market unstable ahead of Eid-ul-Azha. Now onions are being sold at around Tk 100 per kg in the market.
