Maha govt against ban on onion export: Chavan
Nashik: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday said the state government was against ban on exports of onion and sugar among other agricultural produce.
"Congress government has often accorded a top priority to the benefit of farmers and government does not want to ban exports of agricultural produce like onion, sugar, cotton and turmeric.
"I recently held a meeting with Union finance minister Pranab Mukherjee in connection with our said demands," Chavan told reporters here.
Observing that "Jan Lokpal Bill is not a magic wand which can eradicate corruption overnight," Chavan said the state government was adopting various measures to check scams.
