New Delhi: Citing a CAG report which stated that the Delhi government was running in profit, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said the numbers were the proof of its honesty.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report tabled in the Assembly on Tuesday said the Delhi government had had a revenue surplus from 2015-16 to 2019-20.
“This is the CAG report. It says the Delhi government is running in profit since AAP came to power. This is the biggest proof of honesty of AAP. This honesty has robbed our opponents of their sleep,” Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.
The revenue surplus of Delhi government in 2019-20 was Rs 7,499 crore, indicating that its revenue receipts were sufficient to meet the revenue expenditure, the report said.
The CAG report, 2021, on state finances for the year ended March 2020 was presented in the Assembly session by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
