Delhi Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced the 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.
