New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday hit back at the Centre after he levelled allegations against the Central government earlier in the day. BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia attacked and said that Arvind Kejriwal has made a new record of lying. Welcome to their world of untruth. It would not be wrong to say that the Delhi model has failed. He said that Kejriwal gave wrong information about reducing the budget of MNREGA.
He said that the government has increased the budget by 25 per cent of MNREGA. There was no cut in this budget. In 2021-22, 2022-23, when the government presented the budget for MNREGA, there was a grant of 73 thousand crores. It has been increased to Rs 98,000 crore but Arvind Kejriwal is lying. It may be noted that the Delhi Chief Minister had asked in a press conference that the central government has a budget of 40 lakhs, but where is all the money going? Kejriwal further alleged, "They (Centre) waived loans worth lakhs and crores of their super-rich friends, why? If these loans were not waived, the tax would not have to be levied. 3.5 lakh crore income is earned from tax on petrol and diesel? Where did the money go?"
On the question of 'where does the money come', Gaurav Bhatia attacked and said that the money does not go to Satendra Jain's house. Not of use for Manish Sisodia and his family. 80 crore Indians have received free ration with this money for 2 years. With this money, the public got 200 crore vaccines. Gaurav Bhatia alleged that Arvind Kejriwal only has to make a promise but does not know how to keep it. He had said that between 2015 and 2021, we will build 500 new schools. 500 schools did not open, but 16 schools closed. There are many schools where there are no principals. He said "Arvind Kejriwal did not accomplish even half of his promise. He had promised 8 lakh jobs but he could give jobs to 440 people.'' Kejriwal had alleged, "There is talk of closing government schools. It is being said that free treatment should be stopped, but in such a situation, where will the poor get the money from? How will the country run if government money is spent on a few people?"
