Rajnath Singh said that Rajiv Gandhi used to say that when he sends 100 paise, hardly 16 paise reaches Delhi, but today when the Centre sends subsidy of Rs 100 through direct benefit transfer, all the money goes into the beneficiary’s account.
The AAP chief contrasted this with his embattled tenure as Delhi CM, marked by a running feud with the Centre, which he said was an outcome of his constant efforts to reform education, health and power in the capital.
"As the Constitution of India does not give much power to Delhi due to the special position it holds, nothing much can be done. The Constitution will have to be changed if full statehood is to be granted to Delhi," Sheila Dikshit said.
Ashok Nete, BJP MP from Gadchiroli, has shown the highest percentage increase in his wealth. His total wealth has grown by 313 per cent from Rs 1.21 crore to Rs 5 crore.
