Having made several governments in the past cry, onion has become a touchy topic for the Modi government, too. Tweets by Modi and Smriti Irani are going viral – the same ones that they had sent during the UPA’s rule at the Centre. In December 2014, Smriti has tweeted, “Income tax department is keeping a watch on all high value transactions, don’t buy onion.” As a chief minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi had tweeted in October 2013, “Onions are produced mostly in Congress ruled states, then why is the price rising? Don’t they answer?” Just to let it be known, the BJP is ruling in 13 states, and the price of onions is set to touch Rs 100.
