Delhi budget will not be presented today: Kejriwal claims - Center has not given approval
Delhi Budget 2023: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed that the central government has banned the budget of Delhi. This budget was to be presented today. Now the Center and the Delhi government are face to face regarding this budget.
In the country's capital Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party government and the Center are witnessing a clash once again. Delhi's budget was going to be presented today i.e. on Tuesday but the problem has got stuck. Kejriwal government's budget will not be presented today. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claims that the Center has put a freeze on the Delhi government's budget. Accusing the Center, the Delhi Government said that the budget has not yet been approved by the Home Ministry of the Central Government. The budget of Delhi needs the approval of the Central Government, after which it is presented in the House.
According to sources, more than infrastructure, the Delhi government had sent the budget for expenditure on the advertisement. The Ministry of Home Affairs had given notice of this and sought clarification from the Delhi Government. Till now the Delhi government has not replied. That's why the Home Ministry has stopped the budget. According to sources, the Ministry of Home Affairs has not given approval to the budget of the Delhi government so far. The central government is also not satisfied with the budget of the Delhi government.
If central government sources are to be believed, in the proposed budget of the Delhi government, less attention was given to the issues related to infrastructure, health, and common people, more emphasis was given on advertisement in the budget of the Delhi government. That's why it was said that the budget should be sent again after improving it, but till now the Delhi government has not sent the budget after improving it.
The AAP government says that the Home Ministry is lying. A big claim has been made by the Delhi government that his allegations are false. There is a total budget of 78800 crores. In this, 22000 crores will be spent on infrastructure. Only 550 crores will be spent on advertising. Last year also the budget for advertising was the same. There is no increase in the advertising budget.
