Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said they would like to see how the Aam Aadmi Party,which has staked claim to form government in Delhi,implements its poll promise of checking spiraling prices of onion and other commodities.
“Now,we will see the role of AAP,which has promised people to reduce the price of onions,” the NCP leader said here while inaugurating the new tehsil office building and panchayat samiti office at Nandgaon in the district.
