‘Kejriwal Chor Hai’ posters emerge in Delhi amidst allegations of corruption in construction of govt schools

AAP has been projecting its education model as one of its biggest achievements.

Days after the BJP accused Kejriwal government of indulging in Rs 2,000 crore scam in construction of classrooms, posters reading ‘Kejriwal Chor Hai’ and accusing the Delhi CM of being involved in it have surfaced. The posters were put up by Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and Rajouri Garden MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa.

In one of the posters installed by Sirsa, Kejriwal can be seen wearing muffler and prisoner’s clothes, holding in his hand a black bag of money. The poster reads, “The one who claimed to be the most honest one, turned out to be the biggest thief.” It further reads, “A room in a school which usually costs Rs 5 lakhs is being made for Rs 25 lakhs.” Manjinder Singh Sirsa’s name has been mentioned at the bottom of these posters.

In another tweet, Sirsa has accused Kejriwal of graft and asserted that the scam will amount to crores of rupees.

Earlier this month, the Delhi Unit of the BJP has accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia of being involved in a scam relating to the construction of classrooms in the schools of Delhi.

BJP MP Manoj Tiwari had alleged that the AAP government overpaid for the construction of the classrooms and the contracts were largely given to relatives of AAP leaders. He had 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.
