Kejriwal is doing a yeoman service by exposing corruption, scams, scandals one after the other. His latest exposure of revealing the names of influential industrialists and politicians who allegedly stashed money in Swiss banks deserves serious attention and investigation. At least the government should get a list of Indians who have huge deposits, say more than R100 crore, in Swiss banks.

Earlier an impression was created by IAC team that their fight is against the ruling combine only. They made a welcome departure by exposing corruption irrespective of political affiliations. People should give wholehearted support and help to the work and activities of Kejriwal & team and also help them in more and more exposures.
