As the people lost their cool after some time, they started to create a ruckus to enter the premises to purchase onions. Some women also jumped off the compound wall to reach the shops.
The decision of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy came at a time when onion prices have surged across the country.
