Aam Aadmi Party's anti-corruption helpline number (011-27357169) went live on Thursday at 8 am. By 10.30 am, it had already received more than 3,200 calls while many more were in waiting.

Set up under the state vigilance department, the anti-corruption helpline cell is manned by serving and retired police personnel.





On Wednesday, Delhi CM launched a helpline number to deal with corruption and promised action within 24 hours of sting operation to expose graft.

Speaking to reporters at a news conference here, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said 011-27357169 is the anti-corruption helpline number which will work from 8 am to 10 pm.

"We will try to get a simpler four-digit number in the next few days," he said.

[quote align=”center”]People should understand that it is not a complaint number but a helpline number where people will be advised and explained by an anti-corruption department official on how to conduct a sting operation. After doing the sting, he should get back to the same advisor following which a trap will be laid to nab the accused.[/quote]

The Chief Minister said the helpline makes every Delhi citizen an anti-corruption crusader. "With just a phone, every citizen has the power to expose the corrupt," he said.





A team of state vigilance department will look into these matters while teams of Delhi Police will be on standby for any assistance.

The government will give advertisements in newspapers and FM Radio while hoardings will also be put up on the streets of the city to inform the people about the number, said Kejriwal.

"The purpose of launching this helpline is to create fear in the mind of every corrupt individual. Such people should fear that they might be under surveillance," he said.
