New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said that prices of onion will come down in the next few days as the Centre and Delhi government have taken a series of measures to bring down the rates.
“Both the Centre and Delhi governments have taken a series of measures and the impact has been seen in the wholesale market. We hope the prices will come down very soon,” she said.
The prices of onions have soared to Rs 70-80 per kg in retail markets from Rs 35-40 just a few days ago due to shortage on account of damage to crops in Maharashtra, Gujarat and some southern states because of rains.
Asked about rising prices of tomatoes which are selling at Rs 40-50 per kg, she said her government will look into the matter and take effective action.
