New Delhi, Feb 1: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said the Union Budget, which was tabled by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday, will show how much the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party cares for the people of Delhi.
"The people of Delhi are hopeful that the Union Government will protect the interests of Delhi in the budget. Delhi should get more in view of elections. The budget will show how much BJP cares for us Delhiites," Mr Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.
The Delhi government has been demanding more funds for the national capital since it came to power in Delhi in 2015.
In November, 2019, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had demanded Rs 13,000 crore for Delhi in the Union Budget.
The Election Commission while announcing the dates for assembly polls asserted that the Centre will not declare any state-specific schemes in the budget to woo voters. (UNI)
