Paswan said that states will provide onion to people at the rate of Rs 23.90 per kilogram (maximum rate).
"Delhi govt has requested for 100MT onion/Day for 5 days from 28th of September. We will provide required quantity of onion to Delhi. Centre is ready to provide onion to all states as per their requirement @ 15.59 Rs./Kg," he tweeted.
The retail price of onion shot up to Rs 70 per kilogram in the national capital due to a reduced supply of the crop owing to incessant rains and floods in many parts of the country.
