New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to handover Delhi Police and Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to the AAP government, citing a survey which termed the city police “most corrupt”.

The chief minister said his government would “set things right in one year”.

“Modi Ji, do not be stubborn, work with us and handover ACB and Delhi Police to us. We will set things right in one year,” the Aam Aadmi Party convener tweeted.

Citing the survey done by the CMS-India Corruption Study (CMS-ICS), Kejriwal said: “Shocking findings CMS survey today-Delhi police (under Modiji and his LG) most corrupt. Scathing attack on Modiji’s capabilities and intentions”.

The graph of corruption in the national capital has reduced under the AAP government, Kejriwal said.

“Second finding – corruption has come down in Delhi government – it proves (the) AAP government’s neeyat (intention) and administration capability.”

The statement comes after a toddler and a five-year-old child were raped in two separate incidents here.

A global anti-corruption watchdog says the United States has dropped four spots in its list of nations’ anti-corruption efforts and is now no longer listed in the top 20 for the first time.

Acting U.S. Representative at Transparency International, Zoe Reiter, calls a four point drop in the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) a “red flag.”

She says it comes at a time when the U.S. is experiencing “threats to its system of checks and balances” and an “erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power.”

“If this trend continues, it would indicate a serious corruption problem in a country that has taken a lead on the issue globally,” Reiter says.

The United States scored a 71 in the perceptions index after scoring 75 the previous year.

“The expert opinion captured by the CPI supports the deep concern over corruption in government reported by America in our 2017 survey. Both experts and the public believe the situation is getting worse,” Reiter said.
