Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today claimed corruption had come down to ’70-80 per cent’ after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) came to power and cited how his daughter found out that officials were now wary of taking bribe when she went to get her driving license.

“I will not say that we have completely ended corruption in Delhi but it has come down to 70-80 per cent,” Kejriwal said while addressing autorickshaw drivers at a public meeting in Burari in Outer Delhi.

Fighting corruption was a major poll plank of the party. On April 5, AAP government re-launched its anti-corruption helpline 1031 and asked people to send sting videos of corrupt officials. The helpline has received over 1.25 lakh calls.

Striking a personal note, Kejriwal narrated his daughter’s experience of applying for a learner’s driving license and how she tried to find out if officials can be lured into taking bribe.

“My daughter went to get her learner’s driving license. I could have called the department and officers could have made it for me. But my daughter went to the office and waited for her turn. She told the officer (without revealing her identity) that she is not carrying one of the certificates which were required and the officer declined to make her license,” he said.

“She further tried to bribe him by offering money. As she offered money this officer started noticing her phone if she was making a video. My daughter insisted that it was urgent and she was ready to pay any amount but the officer refused it,” Kejriwal said.

The CM told the gathering that after a few minutes, his daughter returned to the officer and gave him her documents.

“The officer after reading her name and my name in father’s section asked her if she was daughter of Chief Minister of Delhi and then entire department came forward to make her license.

“This shows the level of corruption has come down in the city. Even auto drivers have given me feedback. Corrupt officers are afraid while the honest officers are moving fearlessly,” Kejriwal said.

The Chief Minister also asked auto drivers to work honestly and serve the people of the city.

“It is your responsibility to do public service. You have to work with honesty. Recently, DTC people went on a two-day l strike. Most of the auto drivers were over-charging then. Do not take undue advantage when people are in crisis.

“If you serve your passengers with honesty, then they will stand by you and ask for a hike in your fare. I will take care of your children, if you promise to serve the people of this city,” Kejriwal said.

        If the corruption has come down even by 20-30% , it is good indication. However, a clear distinction will have to be made between approaching a Government office by CM's daughter and by any other common man. If the same thing is experienced by any ordinary man without taking the name of any politician or big-wig it is the true indication of success. Again some pertinent questions: 1) Is there any provision for paying extra money for the cause of urgency ? 2) Did she offer money for urgency or for lack of relevant papers ? 3) Did the concerned officer relented after seeing her full name and knowing her to be the daughter of CM or otherwise also would he have the license made ready ?

                    it should be done in Civil services and services of the states,Govt weeps over the financial constraints and says Employees take major crunch of the revenue,in a country of the 1.5 billion,these employees are very less,and now exploitation has started,getting work done on contractual basis,then leaders talks of equality and rights jis se margi BAKWAAS KARWAA LO IF YOU TEND TO GO IN A GOVT SET UP WHERE PUBLIC DEALING IS DONE THEN YOU WILL FIND IN A HOSPITAL A DOCTOR IS EXAMINING MORE THAN 100 PATIENTS IN A OPD DAY. IAS DO EVERY KIND OF WRONG DEEDS AND NEVER GET PUNISHED WE ARE STILL gULAAM ONLY THING IS THAT FACES ARE CHANGED,THESE ARE NOT PEOPLE FREINDLY ADMINISTRATORS AND THESE STILL NOT ABLE TO COME OUT OF THE BRITISH RAJ WHERE A BRITISH OFFICERS TREAT INDIAN LIKE A DOG,SAME SYSTEM IS STILL GOING ON IAS AND LEADERS TREAT PEOPLE LIKE GOD,THEY ARE KINGS AND THEY CAN DO ANY THING
