New Delhi, April 5:
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday pledged to make Delhi among the world’s top five corruption-free cities in five years.
Saying that his AAP government was dedicated to cleansing Delhi, Kejriwal made the announcement at the re-launch of an anti-corruption helpline 1031 — to curb bribery in government offices.
“We will use technology on a large scale to make Delhi among the top five corruption-free cities in the world in five years,” he said.
He also alleged that a conspiracy was being hatched against him ever since he led the Aam Aadmi Party to a landslide victory in February.
“Ever since our party came to power, a conspiracy is on against me,” he said. “Blackmailers and corrupt people have come together to tarnish my image.”
Without naming anyone, the AAP leader said that anyone could “get fame within 24 hours by abusing” him.
It was not immediately if his comments were directed at political parties like the Bharatiya Janata Party or the Congress or dissidents within the AAP.
