Slamming Chief Ministar Arvind Kejriwal, Opposition leader Vijender Gupta alleged that the AAP government had allocated 2200 per cent more funds than the last year on information and publicity.

“As compared to publicity fund (Rs 526 crore), Rs 338 crore has been earmarked for SC/ST/EWS welfare, Rs 350 crore for nutrition, Rs 208 crores for labour and employment, Rs 400 crores for development of slum katras,” he said in a statement.
