We have barely gone abroad, says AAP minister

New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) Ministers in the Delhi government have done far fewer trips than ministers in other states, Delhi Home Minister Satyendar Jain said on Wednesday.

“Our ministers have done less foreign trips compared to other governments. Foreign tours are done only when required, that too with consent,” Jain told reporters.

He added if any Delhi minister went abroad for personal work, he paid for it.

Jain’s comments came two days after Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on Monday asked the Delhi government to provide details of foreign tours by ministers, their staff and officials.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Jain returned to New Delhi on Tuesday from Vatican City after attending Mother Teresa’s canonisation ceremony.

This was Kejriwal’s first visit to any foreign country after becoming Chief Minister in February 2015. His deputy Manish Sisodia and Jain have travelled abroad four times each.
