The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi led by so-called Aam Aadmi and the Chief Minister of Delhi lavishly spent the public money on advertisements as the country’s top auditor slammed the government in its 55 pages report.
As per the report, the Delhi government spent around Rs 33 crore on a single advertisement campaign and 85 percent of the amount from the campaign was spent outside Delhi.
The report of the CAG stated that the Delhi government led by AAP spent the public money lavishly on self-projection through the advertisement. Pointing at an advertisement, the report revealed that a person was talking about the party, not the government so the party’s name was projected in the ad on state exchequer’s money.
The CAG report slammed the Delhi government for using taxpayers’ money on an advertisement campaign projecting the party’s name instead of Delhi government. The top auditor has stated that the advertisement was the party’s campaign so the party should have paid the expenses.
As per the report, the Delhi government spent Rs 526 crore on self-glorification and only provided the details of Rs 100 crore spent on the ad campaigns. The CAG has also questioned the Delhi government for spending Rs 70 lakhs on ads blaming the centre government for the poor law and order situation in the national capital.
The government spent Rs 70 lakh for bashing the Modi government on public money.
Even the CAG report has raised the questions at three ads in which the AAP party mentioned its achievements. The party has claimed to accomplish few projects which are still not completed actually.
The lavish expenditure of the Delhi government for the publicity especially for AAP party made the CAG angry for spending the state exchequer’s money on the self-projection of the party.
First time in the history of Delhi, a party has changed its colours from Aam Aadmi to Khas Aadmi Party and misused the public money by ignoring all the promises made to the public.
