The Kejriwal government’s incapability to run a state smoothly was exposed when the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi presented the Comptroller and Auditor General report for the financial year 2019-20 in the assembly. The report states that the debt of the Delhi government has increased by 7% in the four-year period.
Figures from the 2019-2020 report state that the Kejriwal government’s revdi scheme is costing a fortune. The debt amount has increased from Rs. 2,268.93 crores to Rs. 34,766.84 crores at the end of 2019-2020.
Besides all that the Kejriwal government spends on their claim of developing Delhi, the expenditure of the Delhi police is borne by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs. Even the surplus that the Delhi government has secured is solely because the central government is bearing their pension liabilities.
The Kejriwal government is not in a state to take up loans from the open market. The Government of India is keeping records and receipts of the loans and advances of the Delhi government.
It is to be noted that in July, the Delhi government held a 2-day monsoon session in the Delhi assembly to pass a bill regarding increasing salaries and allowances of MLAs. The Aam Aadmi Party ducked the criticism without any apologies.
The Kejriwal government has been making false promises on account of loans and bills without any remorse. With the coming elections, the Aam Aadmi Party continues to spread lies and traps again, but will they be able to fool the citizens of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh?
