AP govt supplying onions at Rs 25 per Kg: CM

AP govt supplying onions at Rs 25 per Kg: CM

Amaravati, Dec 9 (UNI) Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy said in the Assembly on Monday that Andhra Pradesh is the only State in the country which is supplying onions at Rs.25 per Kilogram through Rythu Bazar outlets.

Intervening during a short discussion on Women Safety here on Monday, the Chief Minister told the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly that the Opposition TDP was trying to stall the discussion on a major issue by insisting for a discussion on the spiraling price of onions.

“The spiralling prices of onions are a serious subject for discussion and it can be taken up later. But the fact remains that only in Andhra Pradesh, onions are being supplied at Rs 25 per kg while onions in the Chandrababu family owned Heritage Foods are being sold at Rs. 200 per kg” the Chief Minister told the House.

Mr. Reddy informed the House that the government is purchasing onions from far and wide places like Sholapur and Alwar and selling them at subsidised rates to the people through rythu bazar outlets, adding that the State has bought over 36,500 kgs of onions so far to supply them on subsidized price.

Later Minister for Finance and Legislative Affairs, Buggana Rajendernath took objection to the manner in which TDP had insulted the Chair by sending onions in a gift wrapper to Speaker T Sitaram. He said that the TDP act reflects their irresponsibility, adding that onions were being procured from Maharashtra and Rajasthan and the Chief Minister is monitoring the supply of onions hrough Rythu Bazar outlets at subsidised rates.
