Imran Hussain writes to Centre refuting reports of rejection of certified onion trucks

NEW DELHI : Food & Civil Supplies Minister Mr Imran Hussain on Saturday wrote to the Union Consumer Affairs Minister Mr Ram Vilas Paswan, strongly refuting media reports attributed to the Union ministry that Delhi government had rejected onion trucks certified by its officials in Nashik.
In his letter Mr Hussain wrote :”This claim is strongly refuted being not based on true facts. Firstly no consignment certified by Delhi government officials has been rejected. Secondly till date only five trucks of such onions have been rejected which were wet, rotten and not fit for human consumption. Moreover, onions of two out of these five trucks have not been lifted back by NAFEED so far.”
Mr Hussain wrote that Delhi government is obliged to provide quality onions at affordable prices to its residents and any lot unfit for human consumption cannot be distributed.
The minister pointed out that Delhi government has requisitioned 90 onion trucks since 28th September and NAFEED has so far been able to supply only 33 trucks.
Mr Hussain has requested the Union Minister to direct NAFEED to provide 10 trucks of quality onions everyday for the next 10 days in order to normalise onions prices in Delhi.
The minister stated that Delhi government is committed to supply good quality onions at affordable prices.
