Twitter abuzz after Nirmala Sitharaman's onion remark

Dec 05, 2019 19:20 IST

With the price of onions skyrocketing, the 'I don't eat onions' comment made by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in the Lok Sabha has not gone well with netizens. Many are calling her comment 'insensitive' and 'casteist'. Some said the minister's comment is an acknowledgement of how little she cared about rising onion prices. Twitter was instantly flooded with memes & jokes with the hashtag #SayItLikeNirmalaTai. Karti Chidambaram even went on to call Sitharaman, India's very own Mary Antoinnette.
