The Directorate of Information and Publicity (DIP) has issued a recovery notice of Rs 164 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party. According to sources, the amount has been asked to be paid within 10 days.

In fact, Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena had directed the Chief Secretary to recover Rs 97 crore from AAP for political advertisements published in the guise of government advertisements during 2015-2016. After one month notice has been sent. But in this the amount has been increased to Rs 164 crore. It also includes interest on this amount.

Sources say that if Aam Aadmi Party’s national convenor Arvind Kejriwal does not pay the amount within the stipulated time, then your properties can also be attached. However, there has been no response from the Aam Aadmi Party to the notice so far.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has attacked the notice issued by the Directorate of Information and Publicity (DIP) to the Aam Aadmi Party. He said that see the illegitimate use of unconstitutional control on officers in Delhi. The BJP has served a notice to Alice Vaz (IAS), Information Department Secretary, Government of Delhi, that from 2017, the cost of advertisements given in states outside Delhi will be recovered from Chief Minister Arvind.

He said that advertisements of Chief Ministers of all BJP states are published in the newspapers of Delhi, government hoardings with photographs of their Chief Ministers are installed all over Delhi. Will their expenses be recovered from the BJP Chief Ministers? Is that why BJP wants to keep the officers of Delhi under unconstitutional occupation?

Delhi government officials are being misused by the LG and BJP, not to do any public service work, but to target elected ministers and the ruling AAP. So they want to continue their control over the services.
