Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday claimed that his government saved Rs. 350 crore in construction of flyovers across the national capital.

“There were some under construction flyovers in Delhi when we took over. We completed those projects before schedule and saved over Rs 350 crore. This was unprecedented. In our country, every government project is delayed by years. But we changed all of it,” said Kejriwal during his inaugural interactive session “Talk to AK”.

He said that government, in turn, slashed taxes to lessen burden on businessmen.

“We saved hundreds of crore and as a result we slashed the tax rates. Another good thing that happened was that tax collection went up after we reduced the tax rates,” he added.
