Onions are being sold at Taka 200 in the markets of Sirajganj. Within two days, price has soared one and a half times.

Customers are at a loss as the price jumps all of a sudden after remaining stable for over the last two weeks.

It has been observed on Saturday after visiting Sirajganj Station Bazaar, Baniyapatti Bazar and large markets on SS road areas that onions are being sold at Taka 180-200 per kg. Imported Egyptian onion is being sold at Tk 100 per kg.

District Marketing Officer Md. Ayub Ali said: “Onion supply is low due to bad weather, that is why prices have risen somewhat. On Friday night, onion was sold at Tk 140-160 and Egyptian onion at Tk 70 a kg. How much has increased today will be known after monitoring the market.”

Dealer Gautam Kumar Dutta said, “Onions are being sold in the open market after a break of 10 days. This will continue until the market price is normal.”
