NEW DELHI: The Delhi government today asked the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to find out who put up hoardings in its areas which allege that the high onion prices in the city are due to the "(Arvind) Kejriwal Tax".
The hoardings that recently came up refer to allegations that the AAP government was selling onions at Rs 40 a Kg despite of procuring them at Rs 18 a Kg. They attribute the difference in prices to the "Kejriwal Tax". The advertisements also bear the logo of the Delhi government - "Delhi Sarkar, AAP ki Sarkar".
"We have directed the NDMC to probe who put up the hoardings in its areas targeting the Delhi government. It's a case of impersonation," said a senior government official. The hoardings have been put up on differents roads that fall under the jurisdiction of the NDMC.
NDMC officials said they have taken a note of such hoardings and initiated a process to remove them. "We have received instructions and found out that such hoardings were put up at certain places. We are in a process of removing them," a senior NDMC official said.
The NDMC authorities, however, did not specify whether they will file an FIR in this regard.
