New Delhi, Jun 6: Taking a pot shot at Aam Aadmi Party Government's scheme to provide free metro and bus travel to women, Minister of State for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep S Puri on Thursday said the AAP Government has announced the scheme even before sending the proposal to the Union Government.
He told mediapersons here that the Delhi Government had not submitted any proposal to the Ministry in this regard. "Schemes are not prepared like this, without making any proposal," he said. It is not that a scheme is announced first and then a proposal is prepared, he added.
Puri said DMRC had also not received any proposal from the Delhi government.
He said the Delhi government had a budget of nearly Rs 50,000 crore for 2019-20 and it it had not been used on the Centre's Swacchh Bharat scheme and health scheme - Ayushman Bharat.
