Aam Aadmi Party demands audit of Media Ads of BJP ruled states after 3 yrs of Modi Govt
BJP-ruled states spending Rs 2000 crores on '3 years of Modi' ads: Manish Sisodia
AAP demands that Rs 2000 crore be recovered from the Bharatiya Janata Party
The Bharatiya Janata Party is celebrating the completion of three years of its term in the Centre. The Narendra Modi government is splurging on advertisements marking this anniversary, in all major newspapers across the country. However, in a shocking development, all the BJP-ruled state governments in the country are also issuing lavish advertisements in several newspapers marking the Central government's three years in power.
During a press conference addressed by the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and senior leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, Manish Sisodia said, "The Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Chhatisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, among other BJP-ruled states have issued large advertisements to celebrate the Modi government's three years in power. Why is taxpayers' money paid to state governments being splurged to glorify and celebrate a Central government? We have found out that Rs 2000 crores is being splurged by these BJP governments to mark their party's government in the Centre. This is criminal misuse of taxpayer's money."
Mr Sisodia said, "These are the same states that are shutting down government schools, hospitals and are running out of medicines. At such a time, they are splurging Rs 2000 crores of taxpayer's money on ads for an anniversary which is not even their own government. We demand that this money must be recovered from the Bharitya Janata Party immediately. We will take this up with the Committee that has been set up to monitor the AAP government's ad spends, and also take this up with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India."
