Kejriwal launches anti-corruption helpline

New Delhi, Jan 8 : Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced an anti-corruption helpline number for Delhiites in order to make "every citizen an anti-corruption inspector."


Kejriwal has announced a helpline number- 01127357169, which will assist every citizen in doing a sting to catch the corrupt.

"If anyone asks you to pay bribes, record the conversation and send us to our anti-corruption department," the Delhi CM said.

He said the helpline number will help one in accomplishing the sting operation and will remain open from 8 am to 8 pm everyday.

"This will make every citizen of Delhi an anti-corruption inspector," Kejriwal said.

He also announced that teams of Delhi Police will be on standby for any assistance. On getting a complaint, a state vigilance department team will look into the matter.

He said that the announcement was made to "empower every citizen to expose the corrupt with the help of a cell phone."

"The idea is to instill fear in the minds of the corrupt that they might be under surveillance," he said.
