Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed on Sunday that Corruption in Delhi might not been completely eliminated, but it has reduced by about 70 to 80 percent since the AAP government came to power.
“Corruption is least in Delhi. I am not saying it is (reduced by) 100 percent. But we have reduced corruption by 70 percent to 80 percent,”
He said while addressing public in Panaji, Goa, as it gears up for the upcoming elections, which are slated to be held in January next year.
Kejriwal asserted that his government’s efforts to curb corruption were being impeded by the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which he claimed had been wrested away the Anti-Corruption Bureau from the purview of the state government for ulterior motives.
“They will not crackdown on corruption and not let us do it. Let them do what they want, our resolve against corruption will not end. Our battle against corruption will go on,” he asserted.
