Chandigarh, July 25

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has demanded that the state government should come out with a white paper on the total expenditure incurred on the pandemic so far, alleging misappropriation of funds.

Leader of Opposition (LoP) Harpal Singh Cheema alleged that on the one hand, the funds raised in the name of combating Covid-19 were being withdrawn from the cooperative banks only to be kept in a "reserve" in private banks, on the other, government hospitals, including Covid care centers, were crying for basic amenities.

He alleged that the claims of Rs 300 crore expenditure in combating the pandemic smacked of rampant corruption. Sunam MLA Aman Arora demanded that Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and state Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu should bring out a white paper to allay public suspicion over their claims.
