New Delhi, Jan 30 IANS | 9 months ago

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Thursday said that corruption has come down in a month that the AAP government has been in power.

With the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government having completed one month of its formation Thursday, Kejriwal said a one month time frame was less but they have been successful in reducing corruption and would soon implement the Jan Lokpal bill.

"An interesting campaign was launched to tackle corruption. I do not have a scientific study to show corruption has been reduced but there are individual incidents where people have come and told me that money is not being asked," said Kejriwal at a press conference.

"I had sent the volunteers five days ago to different departments and it is their observation that in most department corruption has been reduced but in VAT the same system is in progress," added Kejriwal.

He went on to say that "there is a sense of fear which is necessary so we are encouraging that some independent organisation does a survey and checks what amount of change in corruption has been made".

On Lokpal Bill, Kejriwal said: "The Delhi Lokpal Bill will be introduced in the cabinet Friday and in 10-15 days there might be an assembly session and there it will be passed."
