poor quality onions

A man returning after buying onions, sugar, pulse and oil from a truck of Trading Corporation of Bangladesh (TCB) in the capital’s Khamarbari area around noon yesterday. As onion prices have shot up in the market following Indian ban on export of the bulb, people lined up before such TCB sale points for hours to buy onions at subsidised prices. Some of them, however, had to remain satisfied with poor quality onions. Photo: Rashed Shumon
