New Delhi: BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi on Tuesday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for allegedly spending Rs 45 crore on renovating his official residence, and accused the AAP leader of flouting the norms of Master Plan 2021.
Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, she said, ” Kejriwal didn’t take any permission from the DUAC even he didn’t float any tender worth Rs 45 crores”.
She alleged that there was a “scam” in the renovation of the CM’s accommodation.
“It was not done as a single tender of 45 crore but was fragmented into five parts so Rs that the approval of the PWD secretary could be bypassed. Renovation of the chief minister’s residence was done violating the Delhi Master Plan-2021,” Lekhi alleged.
She said “Kejriwal has left not even a single means of looting people’s money. ”
“One is moral hypocrisy and the other is a violation of law… On one hand Kejriwal ji had said that I will lead a very simple life and will not take anything but he worked to make 7-star facilities for himself” she said.
The BJP MP said when Delhi was undergoing the stress of COVID, the illegalconstruction activity of his ‘Sheesh Mahal’ was going on.
