    India had stopped export of onion in September.

    New Delhi:
    Bangladesh on Tuesday urged India to lift the ban on export of onions as the country was facing a shortage of the commodity and buying it at higher rates from other nations.

    Speaking at the inaugural session of India-Bangladesh trade meet in Guwahati, Bangladesh Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi said that Dhaka is finding it difficult to meet its domestic onion requirement due to the sudden ban on exports from New Delhi.

    The minister added that his Indian counterpart Piyush Goyal had recently assured him of revoking the ban after the conclusion of Maharashtra elections.



    India had stopped export of onion in September after crops suffered heavy damages due to unexpected rains.

    The Bangladeshi commerce minister expressed his dissatisfaction over India not sharing any prior intimation on the ban.



    He added that while Bangladesh meets over 80 percent of its onion requirement through exports from India, it was facing an acute shortage despite buying the commodity at much higher rates from Turkey and Egypt.

    We are finding it hard to control the prices of Onion as flood damaged a lot of crops and elections are coming in parts of North India. Already the elections results today are not looking good for the ruling parties.

    I don't think Modi's cabinet can do anything with onion exports, their vote base will revolt. Vegetarian folks are extremely dependent on low onion prices for their daily survival...

    Bangladesh needs to plan for better onion self-sufficiency. If Pakistan can do this, so can we...

    China can deliver them in bulks and their shipment by sea routes is very effective because they got excellent logistic units support to press the delivery costs

    BJP does not really have to worry, they just need to lynch a Muslim and the Indians will vote for them.

    Lynching Muslims > hungry stomach so vote is guaranteed
