India: 1500-2000 tons of potatoes exported to Pakistan every day

Amid spiraling prices of potato in several parts of country, as much as 1,500 to 2,000 tonnes of potatoes are being exported to Pakistan per day through Attari-Wagah land route in the wake of scarcity of the main vegetable crop in the neighbouring nation, say exporters.
“Exporters are sending as many as 70-80 truck loads of potatoes (carrying 1,500-2,000 tonnes) per day to Pakistan as there is a huge demand for this crop in the neighbouring country,” Amritsar-based vegetable exporter Anil Mehra told PTI today.
