Anti-corruption helpline number is back again. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has reactivated the anti-corruption hotline number 001-27357169. As promised in his 70-point manifesto before the election, anti-corruption helpline number will be for people to lodge a complaint against any corrupt activity.
CM Kejriwal always has been emphasizing on giving the power of investigation in people’s hand. While he was CM for 49 days he launched this number and asked people not to refuse if anyone asks for bribe rather give the bribe and record such activity and send the audio or video recording to the government so that appropriate actions could be taken against the culprit. The action is in accordance with the anti-corruption movement that led to the birth of Aam Aadmi Party.
“Every citizen will be anti-corruption inspector. We will ask people to record anyone who asks for a bribe. With due evidence anyone who is corrupt will be charged,” Chief Minister Kejriwal said while relaunching the number.
The number will be operational from 19 February 2014 onwards, and people can lodge a complaint against corruption 24×7 through the given helpline number. It is to be noted that no other government has launched such number and distributed the power by involving country citizens for the benefit of India.
