| Thursday | 17th September, 2020
Kolkata: Protesting against the massive export of potatoes and onions despite its need in the country, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday held the Centre responsible for the abnormal hike in the prices of these two kitchen staples.
The middlemen are exporting potatoes and onions without considering its requirement in the country.
It is the main reason behind the abnormal hike in the prices of potatoes and onions.
This comes when people need to buy potato and onion at a rate of Rs 34 and Rs 40 per kg.
The top brass of the state government held several meetings to check the skyrocketing potato prices.
