Delhi BJP accuses AAP government of Rs 2000 crore scam in the construction of classrooms

Tiwari claimed that the AAP government spent Rs 24.86 lakh on the construction of one 300 square foot classroom which at the market rate will cost not more than Rs 5 lakh.

The Delhi Unit of the BJP has accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia of being involved in an alleged scam relating to the construction of classrooms in the schools of Delhi. A press conference was held today by Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari along with West Delhi MP Parvesh Sahib Singh, North West Delhi MP Hans Raj Hans and others levelling the allegations of corruption against the AAP government.

Tiwari alleged that the AAP government overpaid for the construction of the classrooms and the contracts were largely given to relatives of AAP leaders. He said that the information regarding the cost of the construction of the classrooms was revealed in an RTI filed by his party member. As per the information revealed in the RTI, 34 contractors whom the AAP government gave the project include the associates and relatives of AAP leaders, he alleged.

Tiwari claimed that the AAP government spent Rs 24.86 lakh on the construction of one 300 square foot classroom which at the market rate will cost not more than Rs 5 lakh. He added that the government has already paid an amount of Rs 77,54,21,000 for one tender and 12,478 rooms are already under construction. He said that the AAP government is spending Rs 2,892 crore on the construction of 12,782 such rooms while these classrooms, at the maximum, could be constructed at the cost of Rs 892 crore. He alleged that the AAP government committed a scam of Rs 2000 crore in the project.

He explained that even a flat can be bought at the cost of Rs 1500 per square foot but considering the amount shown to be spent by the Kejriwal government it turns out that the classrooms were built at Rs 8,800 per square foot. Tiwari said that his party will present the evidence of the scam to the Lok Pal. He also demanded Sisodia, who holds the education portfolio, to resign with immediate effect.

AAP has been projecting its education model as one of its biggest achievements. Recently Manish Sisodia had posted a tweet challenging the BJP to choose top 10 government schools of BJP education model that can compete against the top 10 schools of Kejriwal education model.

He asked the BJP to visit the AAP education model schools while he would visit the BJP education model schools and the decide which model was better.
