Delhi Budget 2022-23 focuses completely on employment: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that Delhi Budget 2022-23 has been prepared with the main focus on employment.

Delhi CM said the issue of employment was only discussed during election campaigns and after the polls nobody used to address it.

“However, for the first time, the budget focuses on employment opportunities. Delhi government budget talks about creating 20 lakh employment opportunities, ” he said in the Assembly.

“But we have made provision of Rs 10 crore in the budget to establish boarding schools for them where all their needs will be taken care of. If those children are trained properly, they can bring medals for the country, “Arvind Kejriwal added.

Kejriwal has also blamed the Central government for obstructing Mohalla Clinics projects, saying the Centre has hindered the files related to the clinic, “and then they restricted the files on CCTVs but somehow, we got them passed”.

Delhi CM also said that the ‘door step ration delivery system’ could not be implemented in Delhi, but “we have started this scheme in Punjab”.
