TCB truck filled with onions

A RARE SIGHT… sitting on a TCB truck filled with onions, two salespersons await buyers yesterday. At times, they even offered consumers to buy whatever amount they preferred, but to no avail. People said quality of the essential spice was not good and many were either getting soft or rotten, inset. The salespersons, however, claimed that these were hybrid onions, hence softer. Out of the three tonnes, they were able to sell around half a tonne throughout the day. This photo was taken in front of Jatiya Press Club. Photo: Anisur Rahman
