BJP questions Aam Aadmi Party on Rs. 500 crore ad budget


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for splurging the national capital’s money, as the ruling party at the Centre questioned the over Rs. 500 crore amount that was allocated by the Delhi government for its ad budget.

“The 500 plus crore that has been taken out for the advertising budget is unheard,” BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi said.

Lekhi even pointed out that the ad budget for the Delhi government used to be in the range of Rs. 10-23 crores earlier.

“And 523 crore budget has been spent not in Delhi on Delhi government ad but for ads in Mumbai, Bangalore, Patna, and so on and so forth across the country. That is how Delhi’s money is getting splurged and that is why it is time citizens of Delhi take cognizance of this,” she added.

Reports claim AAP has set aside over Rs. 500 crore to fund its radio advertisements during the current financial year.

The ads, running with the tagline, ‘Jo Kaha, so Kiya’, refer to the party’s pre-poll promises kept and the steps taken by the government in implementing those.
