Karnataka farmers urge Centre to exempt onions from export ban

Amid ban on onion export to check domestic price rise, Karnataka farmers on Saturday urged the Centre to allow shipment of 10,000 tonnes of ‘Bengaluru Rose’ variety of onions to prevent the produce from damage as there is no demand in the domestic market.

A delegation of ‘rose variety’ onion growers led by Kolar BJP Lok Sabha member S Muniswamy met Union Chemical and Fertilisers Minister D V Sadananda Gowda here and requested him to take up the matter with concerned ministers of the Union government immediately.

The delegation said that farmers in Bengaluru Rural, Kolar and Chikkaballapur districts have grown more than 10,000 tonnes of ‘Bengaluru Rose’ onion this year PTI
