Notice issued to AAP to pay ₹164 crore in 10 days

Spent ₹99 crore on political advertisement

Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi – The Directorate of Information and Publicity (DIP) has issued a notice to the National Convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Arvind Kejriwal, to pay up to Rs 164 crores within 10 days. The development came days after Delhi Lieutenant General (LG) VK Saxena directed the Chief Secretary to recover ₹97 crore from AAP that it allegedly spent on political advertisements published in the guise of Government advertisements during the financial year 2015-2016.

The amount includes a deposit of ₹99 crore 31 lakhs and a penalty of ₹64 crore 31 lakhs. If AAP fails to pay the money, legal action will be taken per LG’s orders. The properties owned by the party can be attached for recovery as part of the legal action as per the law.

Editorial viewpoint

The anti-public side of AAP who claims itself to be the servants of the public has come to light. How can those who looted people’s money do anything for public welfare ?
