No other government has been scrutinized as much as AAP’s Delhi government. But a final endorsement of the CM Arvind Kejriwal – led visionary and economic governance comes from India’s Auditor-in-Chief CAG.
With the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report of Delhi’s finances, it is clear that not only the CM Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP Government is one of the most visionary regimes of India, it is also economically sound. Perhaps more than the non-onion eating Finance Minister at the centre.
CAG Report affirms that the AAP Government is not only one of the most visionary, but also economically sound.
The report reaffirms what the citizens of Delhi already know. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi government has delivered and now the CAG report confirms it as the “most honest in India’s history”.
The CAG Report and Endorsement
The CAG report states that the Delhi government has maintained a revenue surplus over the last five years. As per the audit report, tax revenue and non-tax revenue have also improved by 14.70% and 101.05%, respectively.
Speaking on the CAG report, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “In its report, the CAG has said that the Delhi government has been in profit for the past five years. This has happened for the first time. We have got a clean chit from the CAG. I am very happy that we are ending our five years with this.”
Five Years of Sound Development and Exemplary Economics
From the first impression of the slew of reforms from AAP makes one feel that the reforms and subsidies would have in turn put a lot of stress on the Delhi government’s finances. However, the report and closer look at the balance sheet tells how well Kejriwal and company have managed the economics of the city.
The reforms have ranged from enhancing public infrastructure to making it the cheapest across the nation. Furthermore, targeted subsidies like free water, free electricity, and free bus rides among others have also upped the microeconomics of every individual. However, in spite of spending generously on public health, education, and welfare, AAP has managed to keep the revenue in green.
Arvind Kejriwal set for Re-election in 2020
AAP’s first stint in governance ends in February 2020. The party has literally changed the face of the national capital and fought hard against the issues plaguing the residents. While some have already shown exemplary results, benefits from others are gradually being realized by Delhi voters.
Watch: How AAP Government’s campaign is picking up among Delhi’s voters
The inclination to vote for AAP again in 2020 is high among Delhi’s Aam Aadmi. This sets AAP for an unprecedented victory if they break and better their own record of 67 of the 70 assembly seats in 2015.
