Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday reiterated his commitment for creating a corruption-free city, and thanked his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar for his support on anti-graft measures undertaken by the Aam Aadmi Government.
Kejriwal shared his views via a series of tweets.
“We are grateful to Nitish Kumar ji for supporting Delhi Govt’s anti-corruption efforts. We are also in touch wid some other state govts”
“We had sought some officers from Delhi police abt a month back. We hope Hon’ble LG will direct Delhi police to send them soon”
“We are fully committed to making delhi India’s first corruption free state. We hope central govt will also support our efforts”
The Delhi government has ‘hired’ six police officers for the Anti-Corruption Bureau, with reports stating that one Deputy Superintendent of Police and five inspectors and sub-inspectors will be joining the body soon.
However, this move sparked another altercation between the AAP government in the city and Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, with the Raj Niwas on stating that the anti-graft body functions under the ‘authority, control and supervision’ of the LG.
