Punjab: Law minister Rijiju attacks Kejriwal over pending salaries report


AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal came under fire from Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju on Wednesday following a news report that the party-led Punjab government has yet to pay its staff salary for August.

According to the report, the Bhagwant Mann-led government was having financial difficulties and was unable to pay its employees’ salaries for the month of August.

Rijiju said, “Kejriwal wants to make India the world’s No. 1, but what has he done to Punjab within a year?” He also claimed a huge amount of revenue is “extravagantly wasted” in Delhi, which is also ruled by the Aam Aadmi Party.

“Delhi is the National Capital, and the per capita income of Delhi is three times higher than the average per capita income of India. “Huge revenue is extravagantly wasted!” he tweeted.
