At a time, when the people of the State are frustrated over the unbridled price hike of onions, a couple at a marriage ceremony in Lumding received ‘onion’ as gift.
A friend presented onion to the couple as the wedding gift. The incident took place on Saturday.
“I wanted to give them some uncommon present on their wedding day that they could remember for long and what could be most amazing than giving them a bucket of onion during this period of time?” said the friend. Such a rare incident is now the much-talked-about issue in Lumding area.
It may be mentioned here that onion prices hit a record high in recent times. Onions are being sold at Rs. 120 to Rs. 150 per kg in different retail markets across the State.
