New Delhi, Sep 28 (TIWN) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal here on Saturday flagged off mobile vans for supplying onions at Rs 23.90 per kg.

"In addition to ensure that onions are available to citizens across the city, the government will make these available at 400 fair price shops even as it keeps a check on complaints of possible hoarding to create artificial scarcity in the market," said Kejriwal on Friday. He added that 70 mobile vans will be deployed across each Assembly constituency.  Earlier this week the retail price of onions had shot up to Rs 70 per kg due to reduced supply. Onions are in short supply due to torrential rains and floods in many parts of the country.  On Monday, Kejriwal had said that the government was working to contain the shooting onion prices in Delhi. He said that they were procuring onions and trying to supply them across the city via mobile vans.
