The BJP's Delhi unit leaders on Thursday met Lt Governor Anil Baijal and demanded an inquiry into the "non-utilisation" of around Rs 1,000 collected as green cess by the AAP government in Delhi in three years.
"We met the Lt Governor and demanded an inquiry into non-utilisation of around Rs 1,000 crore collected from the people," Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unit chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters after meeting Baijal.
The Arvind Kejriwal government said it had spent Rs 93 lakh of the cess in 2016, but there was "no mention of any expenditure" in 2017.
"The L-G has assured he will immediately take up the matter with the Transport Department," Tiwari added.
