Onions in the capital were being sold at prices as high as Rs.60-70 a kg, the BJP said.
"Under the present Congress regime, even the regular items of kitchen are vanishing from the dinner table. Onions are being sold at a price up to Rs.70 here. The case is also similar with tomatoes," said Shikha Rai, Delhi BJP general Secretary.
According to the BJP, the Congress government had failed to control price rise.
"The Congress government is playing in the hands of hoarders who are creating artificial shortage of onion and other food articles," said Ramesh Bidhuri, Delhi BJP general secretary.
The opposition party alleged the central government had decided to export onions to Pakistan at a time when people in the country were facing a shortage.
