CS orders action against illegal hoarding of onion

Friday, 08 November 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Alarmed by the soaring prices of onion, Chief Secretary Rajendra Kumar Tiwari on Thursday directed officials concerned to take stern action against those involved in illegal hoarding of onion.

“It is the responsibility of the officials of the departments concerned to make onion available to general public at a reasonable and minimum price and action should be taken against those hoarding them illegally,” an official release said quoting the chief secretary.

Onion prices have shot up to Rs 80 per kg in the retail market. Keeping in view the demand of onion in the state, Tiwari directed officials to import it from Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and other states.

In a meeting with the principal secretaries of horticulture and food processing departments, food commissioner and others, the chief secretary stressed that onion should be made available to people at reasonable and minimum price.

He also directed Principal Secretary (Horticulture) to convene a meeting of the officials concerned on a daily basis in order to make onion available to people at minimum price and intimate him about the day-to-day progress.
