Former Mumbai Congress President Milind Deora on Sunday night praised the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi saying that it is now one of India’s most fiscal prudent governments.

Deora took to Twitter and shared a pro-Arvind Kejriwal video describing the AAP government’s achievements in Delhi while stating that the Delhi government's revenue has been doubled and it has managed to maintain a revenue surplus.

“Sharing a lesser known and welcome fact – the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government doubled its revenues to ₹60,000 crores and maintained a revenue surplus over the last 5 years. Food for thought: Delhi is now one of India’s most fiscally prudent governments (sic),” Congress leader Milind Deora tweeted. 

Deora’s remarks come after Congress witnessed a major defeat in 2020 Delhi assembly elections and won zero seats while AAP managed to gain victory on 62 seats. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) got 8 seats.

Arvind Kejriwal took oath as Delhi Chief Minister for the third time on Sunday. Amid the ‘freebies’ jibe against AAP government, a video was also circulated where Kejriwal can be seen talking about the achievements of his government in Delhi. Deora tweeted a part of the video praising AAP.

Earlier, on the day of Delhi election results, Milind Deora had congratulated Arvind Kejriwal for winning the polls with 62 assembly seats out of 70.

“And the winner is... bijli, sadak and paani (Electricity, Roads and Water)! Congratulations Arvind Kejriwalji on being re-elected Delhi Chief Minister. Best wishes & Godspeed (sic),” Deora had tweeted.
