Fresh onion shocker: Pak refuses to supply vegetable to India

|

Srinagar, Aug 29: Adding to India's onion misery, Pakistan has stopped sending the vegetable into Jammu and Kashmir through the bartering points at Poonch and Uri at the Line of Control (LoC) in the state, an India Today report said on Thursday.

The traders have been told by Pakistani authorities that due to rising prices of the vegetable in their country because of its massive demand in India, they will be unable to supply onions for some time, the report said.

Trading sources said bulk orders for onions were made due to the sky-rocketing prices of the vegetable in India but huge demand of the vegetable in India made the onion prices in Pakistan shoot up from Rs 22 per kilo to Rs 38 per kilo within 72 hours.

Around 100 trucks of onions have been imported in two days, costing around Rs 3 crore. Pakistan's decision to stop supplying the onions has come as a shocker to the community and also the local people in the state.
