“Many small anti-corruption units will be established in different wards of the state,” party leader, Kumar Vishwas said at a press conference.

He accused the central government and Lt. Governor, Najeeb Jung, of interfering in the proper functioning of the ACB.

Vishwas said that they will constitute such units controlled by party volunteers if the central government and the Lt. Governor try to weaken their anti-corruption movement.

Meena was appointed as ACB chief by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on June 8 superseding Additional Commissioner, S.S. Yadav. The Delhi government has objected to the appointment of Meena.

Party leader Dilip Pandey said the prime agenda of the party was to fight against corruption.

“We cannot tolerate corruption. AAP is committed to abolish corruption,” Pandey said. (IANS)
