Arvind Kejriwal to pay 97 crore for using public money on Ads
The Delhi BJP on Wednesday welcomed the Lt Governor's decision to order the recovery of Rs 97 crore from the AAP which was splurged by the city government on advertisements in violation of Supreme Court guidelines. "It is a matter of regret that a person (Kejriwal) who came to power promising uprightness and purity in politics today stands accused of misuse of public money," Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari said. "Anyone other than Arvind Kejriwal would have resigned his position owning moral responsibility after this order," Tiwari said. Meanwhile, the Delhi government said it has not received any communication from the Lt Governor's office. "The government has not received any written communication from the LG office. We will react only after receiving the same," an official said.
