Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday attacked Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP for its outcome budget announced for the national capital. Addressing a press conference in BJP Headquarters in Delhi National Spokesperson Sambit Patra accused Aam Aadmi Party of doing politics full of advertisements and drama and in reality delivering no results.

“Since past few days you have been seeing the Delhi Government publishing its budget in Newspapers, you will be surprised to know that none of the big ticket announcements have been implemented on the ground. Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP government is all about ‘Bol Bachchan-Kaam Kacchan’ ; it’s a lot of sound and nothing on the ground,” Patra said.

Citing documents, Patra said, “CCTV cameras were promised all across Delhi for better safety of women and till date, only 60 percent of them have been installed out of which only 50 percent are functional. There was a big announcement of the Food and Shopping festival making several markets in Delhi top class but none of that was executed.

Even the Employment budget that promised to employ 20,000 people is yet to start and no work has been done till now, BJP claimed.

The same is for the education sector where Kejriwal Promised digital classrooms, Hitech labs for several subjects, some subsidies for poor kids out of which barely some 37 percent have received the benefits in the past 8 years. He didn’t even do anything wrt Start-ups… crores of rupees these projects were announced but money is not been spent on these projects instead its all spent on Arvind Kejriwal’s publicity”

The Delhi government has recently released the Outcome Budget for 2022-23, which provides a detailed list of budget allocations linked to specific outcomes and results. According to reports, outcome budget report of the government for the first two quarters of the current financial year, the AAP government’s ambitious Rozgar Budget (2022-23) presented in Delhi Assembly is still in execution mode.

Several of the schemes announced by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in the Assembly for employment generation, including the food truck policy, market redevelopment, Rozgar Bazar portal, and Delhi Bazar, among others, are at various levels of approval and still in the pipeline.
