Delhi govt didn’t release Rs 938 cr to civic bodies: North Delhi mayorPTI | New Delhi | Updated: 22-01-2021 00:09 IST | Created: 22-01-2021 00:09 IST
North Delhi Mayor Jai Prakash on Thursday alleged that the AAP government has not released Rs 938 crore to civic bodies even though it was announced by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia a few days ago.
Delhi Health minister Satyendar Jain had earlier told reporters that the money announced by the city government was ''not something it owed to the civic bodies'', but the fund was announced to pay the salaries of their employees.
''Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has become a 'Dhritrashtra', and till date, the Delhi government has not yet released Rs 938 cr for disbursement of salaries of the corporation employees,'' Prakash alleged.
