Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal threw open the much-awaited flyovers at Seelampur and Shastri Park for the public in northeast Delhi on Saturday and said the AAP government is ensuring the best facilities for the people of the city by saving money in every project.
Addressing a gathering at an event, Mr Kejriwal said his government has built the two flyovers at a cost of Rs 250 crore against the sanctioned amount of Rs 303 crore and that the AAP dispensation has saved Rs 53 crore on the project.
"In Delhi, we built an air-conditioned hospital having all facilities with an expenditure of only Rs 30 lakh per bed.... Since the AAP has come to power, we have been saving money in every project.
"Through the saved money, we have made medicines, water and electricity free, and are also building the best schools. We are providing facilities to the people of Delhi by saving money in projects," he said.
