Bam on the Onion Cartels

The government must immediately look into reports that cartels and several unscrupulous traders are conniving to manipulate the supply of onions in the market, to the detriment of our local farmers, especially in the countryside.

With the alleged cartel maneuvering and the onset of the onion harvest season, we expect a significant drop in prices of onion, to the disadvantage of our farmers.

We need to act now to safeguard our onion farmers, who would be robbed of their livelihood and income.

If proven true, those behind these cartels must be brought to justice and severely punished.
