Aam Aadmi Party National convener, Arvind Kejriwal acclaimed credit of saving more than Rs. 8 crore in I.T.I building at Mangolpuri construction but it has been proved that Delhi government has spent Rs. 4.33 crore extra on the project.
As per the tender document, the tender value of the I.T.I building at Mangolpuri Delhi was Rs. 11.67 crore and not Rs 24 crore as claimed by Kejriwal-led government.
Kejriwal is ‘on cloud nine’ these days, highlighting Delhi governments ‘so-called’ achievement, which is merely a publicity stunt. Kejriwal claims that he has got the I.T.I building at Mangolpuri Delhi completed at the cost of Rs. 16 crore instead of Rs. 24 crore thus saving Rs. 8 crore, which has been added as another big lie in Kejriwal’s list of lies and failures.
Former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit initiated the Project
Project got initiated under the regime of former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit, who was also selected as the Best Chief Minister by the Journalist Association of India.
The I.T.I building at Mangolpuri Delhi project was started in July 2013 when Kejriwal was nothing but just a protester. Flying high Delhi Chief Minister got the project completed with an increased tender value of 25% (approximately).
While inaugurating the new I.T.I building in Mangolpuri, Kejriwal without hesitation and cross-checking the values announced that, “Delhi government has saved Rs. 8.3 crore in the project whose estimated cost was Rs.24.2 crore. We have spent just Rs.15.9 crore on the construction work”.
While addressing the gathering Kejriwal made another bogus promise to the people of Delhi, wooing them with improved employment scenario in the private sector. “AAP is trying hard to expand the capacity of I.T.Is in the National capital so that more than 1 lakh students can be absorbed, with a projected outlay of Rs 1,000 crore”, said Kejriwal.
Kejriwal also claimed to have completed the construction work of three flyovers across Delhi at lower costs thus saving more than Rs. 300 crore. It would now be required to check the tender values of all those projects and see if those projects were really completed at lesser costs or it is just an eye-wash for the people of Delhi.
People who are fed-up of kejriwal’s list of fake promises turned up at the venue and showed black flags to liar Kejriwal.
