According to the retail traders of Hili market, price of onion has gone up at the moment though it decreased after the news of import. In the difference of last two days prices of onion have increased by 15 to 20 taka per kg according to the variety. Today onion is selling at 50 to 70 taka per kg. Retail sellers and general buyers are in disarray at this situation. Retail sellers allege that importers are increasing the price by forming syndicate.
