2013 saw a small drop in production, and large drop in availability of onions in India. With the demand increasing, and supply dropping drastically, onion prices skyrocketed, leading to what everyone is calling the 'onion crisis'.

Where does politics fit in? Why is the Congress worried? Why is the BJP giving out subsidised onions? How will this effect the December elections? Watch to find out :)
