Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal during his recent visits to Goa refused to stay in the state guest house, and only a meagre Rs 500 was spent by the government in the trips, the Legislative Assembly was told on Monday.

“The chief minister of Delhi was provided vehicles and accommodation at the state guest house. He was received and seen off at the airport. However, he did not avail the accommodation at the state guest house,” state protocol minister Dilip Parulekar told the House.

“The state government had presented a flower bouquet amounting to Rs 500 on his first visit,” the minister said.

The question about the expenses on Kejriwal’s visits was tabled by Goa Vikas Party MLA Fransisco Miccky Pacheco.

Kejriwal had visited Goa twice on May 22 and June 28, during which he addressed a public meeting and interacted with cross section of society.
