The AAP leaders accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government of “huge scam” in the construction of the highway, which is being developed to decongest NH-48 between Delhi and Gurugram.

During their protest, the AAP leaders cited the recent audit report by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) which flagged that the project is being developed at a cost that is nearly ‘14 times’ the amount that was originally approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) in 2017.

The Dwarka Expressway project is a big scam by the Modi government, said Kakkar as she alleged that the project was approved at a cost of Rs.18 crore/km but is being built at a cost of Rs.251 crore/km without any prior approval.
