Delhiites troubled by stratospheric prices of onions have got major relief from the Kejriwal government. From Saturday, the Kejriwal government will sell onion at the rate of Rs 23.90 per kg. It will be sold from 400 rations shops and 70 mobile vans. One mobile van will go to each assembly area. One person will get only 5 kg onion and for this, an identity card will not be needed. Onions will be sold from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that the government will sell onions till the time its price in the market does not reduce. Also, expecting honesty from the common people of Delhi, he said that onion should be bought only for domestic use. Currently, onion is available for Rs 60-Rs 80 per kg in Delhi. For the time being, the Delhi government has ordered the purchase of 5 lakh kg onion for 5 days. The Delhi government is buying onion from the Centre at the rate of Rs 15.60 per kg.
