New Delhi: Advocate Aman Pawar, legal affairs in-charge of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee, on Monday asked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government to file its response as to how does the party has money for self glorification when they cannot pay for the concerns of the people.
“In our Right to Information we asked four questions-money AAP’s spent on TV, radio, hoardings and newspaper advertisements in the last three months. We have the answer on newspaper advertisement that Rs.14.5 crore has been spent by AAP in last three months. How do they have money for self glorification when they cannot pay for cleanliness, MCD workers, widow pension etc,” Pawar told ANI here.
“We have got to know that in 90 days they have mostly made expenditure on press. They are expending money in other states also that is not benefiting Delhi people,” he added.
The Delhi government has spent Rs 14.5 crore on just advertisements, published in newspapers between February 10 and May 10, reveals an RTI filed by the Congress.
The AAP government came under attack from the opposition Congress on Sunday for its advertising campaigns.
“On one hand we don’t have money to pay to safai karamcharis for salary, on one hand we don’t have money even to pay for pension but on the other they are spending huge amounts(for advertisments) for self publicity,” Congress Leader Ajay Maken said.
Meanwhile, AAP had yesterday alleged that ‘somebody had lied’ about the government having spent crores on advertisements.
