Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung has directed General Administration Department (GAD) of Delhi Government to provide details of all foreign tours undertaken by AAP ministers, their personal staff and other officials in the last 18 months.

Besides the duration of stay and expenditure incurred on foreign trips, the L-G office has also sought details of the purpose of visits.

The development comes at a time when Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and PWD minister Satyendra Jain have just concluded their visit to Vatican to attend canonisation of Mother Teresa.

Sources said the L-G office has asked the GAD to furnish all such details to Raj Niwas by September 12.

“The note sent to the GAD is part of the review the LG House is conducting, following the August 4 order of Delhi High Court, of Delhi government over the past one and half years,” a senior official said.

Sacked AAP minister Sandeep Kumar has also been accused of travelling to the US in May-June this year without informing the government. According to BJP, Kumar travelled to the US twice and used his position to facilitate the birth of his child in New York.
