Chandigarh: Comedian-actor Jaspal Bhatti in
his unique satirical style on Wednesday engaged the services of two
Santa Claus` to buy onions to give as gifts this Christmas as
the vegetable is getting out of common man`s reach due to its
"exorbitant price".

"Common man will be much happier getting onions as gifts
as the skyrocketing price of the vegetable has made it
unaffordable for public," he said while buying the vegetable
along with the Santas at a market here.
"Though, of course, we would be able to gift a very small
sized onion to only a limited number of families," he said.

He appealed to all Santa Claus` to hide onions in ladies
purses and stockings hung in homes to spread happiness during
the Christmas.
He also appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to get
himself into the Santa costume and start delivering onions to
common man.

Explaining how he was able to buy the onions at such an
"exorbitant price", he said, "We have got funds from those
involved in big scams like 2G allocation and others. You will
get to know about the funding agencies through Wikileaks
