| Thursday | 29th October, 2020
NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday blamed the central government's policies for the spiralling prices of onion and said he would speak to the Centre about the stock limit imposed on the commodity traders.
Maharashtra is one of the top producers of onion and Nashik is a major hub of the commodity.
Speaking to onion growers and traders in Nashik, Pawar said a comprehensive policy is needed regarding lifting of the export ban and stock limit of onion, and it should cover interests of all stakeholders.
"Discussions will be held soon with authorities concerned at the Centre regarding this.
Nashik has always been known for growing quality onion and the rise and fall in market prices affect onion the most, the NCP chief said.
