Will watch how AAP controls price rise, says Sharad Pawar

Two Delhi state governments - Sushma Swaraj led BJP government and the Congress government headed by Sheila Dixit - collapsed following rise in price of onions and other commodities, he said.

‘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.

People do not react when they pay high prices for luxury bus tickets and buy mineral water bottles, but there is a strong reaction when prices of onions and other agricultural produces increase, he pointed out.

If farmers get more money from their agricultural produce, it is better for them, said Pawar, who is on a two-day visit to Nashik.

Maharashtra PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal, NCP MLA from Nandgaon Pankaj Bhujbal, party MP Sameer Bhujbal and other NCP leaders were present on the occasion.

Meanwhile, downplaying the threat posed by the rise of the AAP as a new political force, Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav on Wednesdaysaid AAP’s ‘magic’ will not work in Uttar Pradesh and claimed that those who fought SP in the state were wiped out.

 ‘AAP’s magic will not work in UP... Many such (parties) had come here, there is only SP here in UP. Those who fought with SP have been wiped out,’ Yadav told reporters on the sidelines of a function.
