Onion prices continued to hover at Rs 80 a kg in New Delhi on Monday, said reports.
Dikshit on Thursday met Union Food Minister KV Thomas and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and discussed the issue of rising onion prices.
She said the meeting with the two Union Ministers was 'good'.
"We had a very good meeting," Dikshit said while addressing a press conference on Thursday after the meeting.
She said the government is trying its best to reduce the price of onions.
"We are doing our best to ensure that the prices come down," the Chief Minister said.
She said 'black marketing' of onions should be stopped.
Pawar earlier in the day said onion prices will come down soon.
"This is just a temporary phase...Prices likely to fall in next few weeks," Pawar said while addressing a press conference on Thursday.
The issue of onion price might act as a crucial factor in the upcoming assembly polls in Delhi.
With onion prices touching sky-high figures across India, the Centre has relaxed norms for import of onion.
The government allowed fumigation of onion without applying any penalty on it.
