New Delhi: "After weeks I ate onions today with 'bhindi' (lady finger)," Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said, admitting that the skyrocketing price of the vegetable had affected her kitchen too.
Dikshit's comments came at a press conference at her official residence on Saturday where she explained various measures taken by her government to contain prices of onion, which has been selling for as high as Rs 100 per kg.
The BJP immediately hit out at Dikshit, calling her remark a "white lie".
"Dikshit is telling a lie. She knows people of Delhi are angry with her government because of high onion prices and it will impact the Congress in the elections. That is why she is trying to be emotional," senior Delhi BJP leader Vijender Gupta said.
