BJP accuses Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
The Bharatiya Janata Party has made a big allegation on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. On Friday, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra accused Kejriwal of lying and spending huge amount on advertisements.
Patra said that the Aam Aadmi Party has spent Rs 19 crore to advertise student loans of Rs 20 lakh.
The Delhi government has spent a huge amount on its Higher Education Skill Development Guarantee Scheme.
Kejriwal is just an election bee: Sambit Patra
In the press conference on Friday, Patra attacked the Chief Minister of Delhi.
Patra said that Kejriwal only pretends that he cares about the world, but he only cares about himself. He was targeted for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s welfare schemes, but Kejriwal spent Rs 19 crore for advertising a loan of 20 lakhs. Of these, only two students were given loans. He is just an election bee.
Sambit Patra targets Kejriwal
Arvind Kejriwal had claimed that the BJP is helping the corporates. Businessmen’s loans were waived.
To this, Sambit Patra replied that Kejriwal should know the difference between a loan write-off and a waiver.
“Corporate tax of Rs 6.63 lakh crore was collected in 2018-19 and Rs 7.1 lakh crore in 2021-22. This money was used for poor people,” he said.
These services are for public welfare- Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier defended subsidized electricity and water supply in Delhi and now in Punjab amid the BJP’s attacks. He said that it is for public welfare.
Out of 89 only two students got loan
In the financial year 2021-22, 89 students applied to get the benefit of the scheme, out of which only two students got the loan.
This time the government had spent Rs 19 crore 50 lakh on the advertisement of the scheme, but the benefit was given to two students i.e. loan of only 20 lakh rupees.
Accordingly, the advertisement expenditure done by the Delhi government is many times more than the plan.
The purpose of the scheme is to give loans up to Rs 10 lakh to the students.
The Delhi government launched the Delhi Higher Education and Skill Development Guarantee Scheme on June 2015. The scheme aims to provide loan facility up to Rs 10 lakh to the students doing 10th or 12th class from Delhi to study in the college.
