Delhi police seized almost 2000 posters which were allegedly being delivered to the Aam Aadmi Party’s office. Police also found the van with the posters in the IP Estate area in Central Delhi during which the driver told the police that he had been instructed to deliver the posters to AAP headquarters.
All this started after the Modi government stopped Delhi’s budget which was scheduled for Tuesday and was put on hold due to the Kejriwal dispensation and the central government trading charges over allocations under various heads Following this Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejrival wrote a letter to PM Modi requesting him not to stop Delhi’s budget. He wrote in the letter, “This is the first in the last 75 years that a state's budget has been stalled. Why are you upset with Delhiites? Please don't stall Delhi's budget. With folded hands, Delhiites urge you to pass their budget.”
After all the events, the budget has now been passed and presented by the new finance minister Kailash Gahlot in the Delhi assembly. The budget requires approval from the President through the Union home ministry.
