BJP’s Jolly goes to Sheila with ‘Diwali gift’: a basket of onions

Jolly decided to gift Dikshit a basket full of onions after he came to know that “she had not eaten onions” for weeks.

Delhi BJP leader Vijay Jolly on Monday gave Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit a unique Diwali gift — a basket of onions. Registering his protest against the Delhi government for “not taking any action to contain the rising prices of onions”,Jolly decided to gift Dikshit a basket full of onions after he came to know that “she had not eaten onions” for weeks.

At a press conference on Saturday,Dikshit had said,“After weeks,I ate onions today with bhindi,” admitting that the skyrocketing price of the vegetable had affected her kitchen too.

“I came to know that Dikshit had not eaten onions for weeks… That is why I decided to gift her a basket full of onions as a Diwali gift,” Jolly told reporters after meeting her at her official residence.

Accusing the Delhi government of doing nothing to contain the prices of onions,Jolly said the rates had gone up because of hoarding.
