‘Kejriwal is looting public funds by installing CCTVs’

The Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee on Monday alleged that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s move to install CCTV cameras in residential areas a “source of corruption” and the AAP government is “making false promises” with an eye on Delhi Assembly elections due next year.

Claiming that the Mr. Kejriwal is trying to gain “political capital” by installing the cameras, DPCC spokesperson Ramakant Goswami said the State exchequer is being “looted” by the party. “They said the installation of the CCTV cameras is a good concept as it would help to maintain law and order. But Mr. Kejriwal has been trying to take political capital out of the installation of the cameras without bothering to find out whether the installed ones are functioning properly,” said Mr. Goswami.

Stating that the government is “looting public funds”, DPCC spokesperson Jitender Kumar Kochar said, “We challenge Mr. Kejriwal to come and see the condition of the CCTV cameras already installed in Malviya Nagar. Even though maximum funds have been utilised for the cameras, the local MLA has not bothered to get the faulty cameras repaired.”
