BJP to hold Lok Vidhan Sabha on CAG report

The Delhi BJP on Saturday challenged the AAP government to make the recent CAG report public through advertisements if “it does not have anything to hide”. The Delhi BJP has been alleging that the report by the Comptroller and Auditor General exposes misuse of public money by the Kejriwal government on advertisements.

If the Kejriwal government fails to call a special session of Delhi Assembly to table the CAG report, the Delhi BJP unit will hold a 'Lok Vidhan Sabha' at Jantar Mantar to inform people about the audit report, said Delhi BJP unit president Satish Upadhyay. He added that BJP leaders will inform residents' welfare associations (RWAs) about the CAG report “so that people should know about the misdeeds of AAP government”.

“Promising a transparent government, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia have always regarded the CAG report as a religious scripture. Strangely today the Kejriwal and Sisodia are not only running away from placing the report before the people but the Deputy CM has shown his frustration by saying that it is a matter of inquiry as to how the CAG report has come to the knowledge of Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta,” said the Delhi BJP.

The Leader of Opposition said that the AAP government has been trying to suppress the audit report as “the report can convince people about Kejriwal government's misuse of public money on advertisements in other states for its own political expansion”.

Gupta added that the CAG has forwarded its audit report to the Delhi government on the “financial irregularities during 2015-16 period. “But Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia did not submit the report before the House and in order to avoid debate on the government's spending on advertisements, he said that the report has not been received by the government,” Gupta said. “The media advisor of the CAG had said in a press conference that the audit report of the CAG was handed over to the principal secretary, revenue, on August 22,” he added.

The leader of opposition said that the Delhi government does not want to make the report public to cover up its scams, but the BJP will not let it happen. According to Delhi BJP unit, the CAG had released the report to news channels on August 23 evening.
