The State government here has released  an easy-to-remember four-digit number for its anti-corruption helpline. Now, people can dial 1031 and register their complaints against government staff, who demand bribes.

The anti-corruption helpline number 011-27357169 received more than 23,500 calls within two days being launched.

 Kejriwal said that it is the people of Delhi, who want to eradicate corruption from the society. “Why are they responding to the efforts of the government with regard to the launch of the anti-corruption drive?

“Sixteen sting operations of bribe-seekers have been done, action is expected by Monday.

The case of corruption against an assistant registrar has been made. He will be trapped by Monday. His assistant has been arrested for seeking bribes in his name,” said Kejriwal.

Kejriwal has appealed to the people to use the helpline only to register corruption-related complaints.

Talking about the power supply issue in Delhi, Kejriwal said the details of the scheduled power cuts of the week would now be made available on the website ‘delhisldc.org’. Power companies will have to give weekly power-cut information through the website.

Complaints regarding defective electric meters can be submitted to Deputy Commissioners.

The Chief Minister said that the government would setup an independent meter-testing agency to check defective meters.

Meanwhile, The Delhi BJP on Friday staged a dharna at Rajghat to expose the “doublespeak” by the AAP government, which according to the BJP, has failed to fulfil its promises and is now resorting to various gimmicks to divert the citizens’ attention from real issues including corruption and price rise. The dharna was held at Rajghat as this was the first place visited by Kejriwal after taking oath as CM.
