Claiming a huge dip in corruption in the national capital, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Sunday, said, “I will not say that we have completely ended corruption in Delhi but it has come down to 70-80 per cent.” Kejriwal made these comments while he was addressing the auto-rickshaw drivers of Delhi.

According to elections.in, “The Delhi government has received more than 1.25 lakh calls. Most of these complaints were made against the officials of the Jal Board, civic bodies, transport department and police department,” just in a month after the re-launch of the Delhi government’s Anti Graft Helpline. Recently, the Sub Registrars of three departments of the East Delhi district were suspended by the Delhi government after the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Delhi presented its report of the wrong doings in the concerned departments.

During the address, Kejriwal declared the launch of a helpline (011- 4240 0400) through which people can lodge complaints against the auto- drivers. He also announced Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the auto- rickshaw drivers. The report also stated that the drivers, while going back home, could put up a board of their destination to avoid being forced to go to other places. The CM added that the authority to take legal action against the drivers, not wearing their uniforms, is now being transferred from the Delhi Traffic Police to the Transport Department of State Government. Kejriwal also highlighted the fact that the Delhi Government will try to fulfill its election promises within four years.

The general public is often troubled by the auto-rickshaw drivers as they refuse to take passengers, don’t turn on the meters and also behave impolitely. Through the launch of the helpline and the announcement of SOP, state’s CM has tried to fulfill his promise that he made during election trail.
