The Delhi government spent around Rs 5 crore in publicising the two rounds of the odd-even scheme, implemented for 15 days each in January and April respectively, the Lok Sabha was told recently.
The list of publications which received money from the Kejriwal government for carrying the advertisements interestingly included dailies from Kerala, Karnataka, Odisha and Tamil Nadu among other states.
The AAP government came under attack from the opposition Congress on Sunday for its advertising campaigns.
“On one hand we don’t have money to pay salaries to sanitation workers, on one hand we don’t even have money to pay for pension but on the other they are spending huge amounts (for advertisements) for self- publicity,” Congress leader Ajay Maken said.
