AAP govt spent Rs 30 lakh on ads; just Rs 3.15 lakh in loan to students: Yogendra Yadav

The AAP government spent Rs 30 lakhs on advertisements for student loans’ scheme, but only three students got a mere Rs 3.15 lakhs till December last, Swaraj India today claimed, as it sought to rupture the “tall claims” made by the Arvind Kejriwal dispensation in the field of education.

The Higher Education and Skill Guarantee Scheme is Delhi government’s flagship programme.

Addressing a press conference, Yogendra Yadav said doubling of education budget is also a “myth” as figures tell a different tale and stated the number of schools and colleges in the national capital show a decline, contrary to the claims made by the Delhi government.

“Of these, the Delhi Government gave only 3 loans, limiting their exposure to a mere Rs 3.15 lakhs. All the remaining loans were financed through a similar central government scheme.

“In its very first year (2015-16), the government made an advertising expenditure of over Rs 30 lakhs,” Yadav said.
