How Arvind Kejriwal is planning to transform Delhi into the country’s first “corruption-free city”

In an effort to weed out graft and transform the national capital into the country’s first “corruption-free city”, the Aam Admi Party (AAP) has decided to come up with a blueprint to tackle corruption.

The comprehensive “anti-corruption” strategy comes close on the heels of the launch of the anti-corruption helpline by the party.

Speaking on the prominent issue of corruption on AAP’s agenda, AAP Delhi Convener Ashutosh said, “We are on the process of preparing the blueprint after launching the 1031 helpline. The war against corruption has started. To give it a more robust shape and to decide on the extent of party’s involvement, a strategy is being worked out.”

“Our commitment is to make Delhi the first corruption-free city and we will take all possible steps in this regard”, he further added.

AAP also derided BJP’s decision to name its own MLA Vijender Gupta as the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly and not conferring the same to anyone else in Lok Sabha.

“AAP believes that all political parties should respect each other and respect the opposition without which the government won’t be accountable. We gave the post to BJP despite having overwhelming majority,” Ashutosh said.

“But strangely BJP has not taken any step towards this direction even after 11 months of assuming office. They should learn from us and consider our decision as an example otherwise we would wonder whether the BJP has less trust on democratic norms”, he added.
