Prithvi­raj Chavan, Congress leader and for­mer chief min­is­ter said that it was fail­ure on the part of the govern­ment in not an­tic­i­pat­ing the bumper pro­duc­tion of onion. “With such abysmal sub­sidy, the govern­ment is dis­cour­ag­ing the farm­ers from plant­ing onion next year,” said Chavan.

Nanasa­heb Patil said that if at all the govern­ment was se­ri­ous about the farm­ers plight, then they should pro­vide sub­sidy for a min­i­mum of Rs500 per quin­tal.
