Delhi govt sells onions for Rs 50/kg

New Delhi, Aug 17 : With onion prices soaring as high as Rs 80 a kg, Sheila Dikshit-led Delhi government has started selling onions at around Rs 50 per kg Saturday onwards.

The government has deployed 150 mobile vans to cover 600 points across the city where people can buy onions at a cheaper rate.

Besides, the vegetables can be availed at discounted rates at 400 stores, including 280 Mother Dairy outlets, across the city.

Keeping in mind that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government was ousted in 1998 following rise in onion prices, Dikshit made this well-planned move three months before the assembly elections.
