Budget Session of Delhi Assembly from Feb 22 to 28

NEW DELHI: The AAP government on Tuesday decided to convene a seven-day Budget Session of the Delhi Assembly starting February 22. According to an official statement, the decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

"The Cabinet in its meeting on Tuesday recommended convening of the Eighth session (Budget session) of the sixth Delhi Legislative Assembly from February 22 to February 28," the government said in a statement.

Last year, the Aam Aadmi Party government had presented a Rs 53,000 crore budget for 2018-19 in the Assembly, which laid emphasis on environment, health, education and water. The government had also announced installation of CCTV cameras in schools, providing self-defence training for girl students, allocating Rs 100 crore for free Wi-Fi, which was a major pre-poll promise by the AAP and installation of 1.2 lakh CCTV cameras in the city by June 2019 . This is the first "green budget" of the government for effective containment of pollution in the city, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had said in the budget session of the Assembly last year.
