The National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (Nafed) questions the AAP government where has profit margin on 25 lakh kg onion gone, hints at bungling.It’s really a tear-jerking tale. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s claim that it purchases onions at Rs 40 a kg and sells these to you at Rs 30 a kg has turned out to be a farce. The AAP government, which came to power on the promise of eradicating corruption has procured onions at a much cheaper price of Rs 18 a kg and sold these to Delhiites at Rs 30 a kg, according to RTI replies.
The move, the RTI replies state, is in stark contrast to the Cabinet decision that the government will sell onions at a no-profit-no-loss basis in the Capital. The National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (Nafed) has alleged that there is a huge difference between the procurement cost and the price at which the AAP government sold onions to Delhiites.
