NEW DELHI: On Sunday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the AAP government has saved over Rs 350 crore in building five flyovers across the Delhi since the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) took charge in February 2015.

Kejriwal said in the inaugural interactive session “Talk to AK” that when we took over, there were some under-construction flyovers in Delhi. We completed those flyovers before schedule and we saved over Rs 350 crore. This was incredible. In India, the projects of all government is delayed by years.


Kejriwal also said that the Aam Aadmi Party government also slashed tax rates to reduce the burden on businessmen.

Kejriwal added that we saved hundreds of crore and as a result we slashed the tax rates. There is a good thing happened that when we slashed the tax rates, the tax collection went up.

The priority of AAP government was on four sectors — education, health, electricity and water, said Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

He said that government has worked on various things, but the main priority of government is four sectors — education, health, electricity and water. AAP believes that spending on health sector and education sector is not an expenditure but an investment.

Arvind Kejriwal noted that when the youth of India is educated, then the government would not need to worry about development, the educated youths will develop the country themselves. That’s why, we increased the budget by 100% on education and by 50% on health sector.
Recently, the AAP government has launched a dedicated website, www.talktoak.com. Through this website people can directly interacts with the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. A dedicated twitter handle, “@TalkToAK_” has also been created for the programme.
