Aam Admi Effect: Corruption came down in Delhi state
-DR. ABDUL RUFF COLACHAL
For the first time in the history of independent India, a feeling is growing steadily that corruption is a serious crime. This feeling is being felt at national, but in Delhi state the level of corruption has come down drastically.
Although a systematic study would come out soon about the corruption situation after the Aam Aadmi Party came to power in Delhi state. But any one who has visited any government office for some work to be done will testify that officials do not demand bribes now.
That is to say, the government employees have taken the Kejriwal warning quite seriously. It seems even in private offices and establishments, the service people are very careful about prolonging th corruption drive as it was before the Delhi poll.
That is the success of Common man party in Delhi which has made the people first to realize that taking or giving bribes are unacceptable and punishable.
In fact common people wonder how come the officials have stopped troubling the people with their customary demands.
That is first victory of Aam Admi party within just a month of rule. .
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal aid that corruption has come down in a month that the AAP government has been in power.
With the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government having completed one month of its formation on 29th January , Kejriwal said a one month time frame was less but they have been successful in reducing corruption and would soon implement the Jan Lokpal bill. "An interesting campaign was launched to tackle corruption. I do not have a scientific study to show corruption has been reduced but there are individual incidents where people have come and told me that money is not being asked," said Kejriwal at a press conference.
Kejriwal had sent the AAP volunteers five days ago to different departments and it is their observation that in most department corruption has been reduced but in VAT the same system is in progress.
Kejriwal, the CM man on duty, went on to say that "there is a sense of fear which is necessary so we are encouraging that some independent organisation does a survey and checks what amount of change in corruption has been made".
Kejriwal said that the Delhi Lokpal Bill will be introduced in the cabinet Friday and in 10-15 days there might be an assembly session and there it will be passed.
Lokpal, when fully implemented after getting it passed in the Assembly, people would get full benefits and justice. When the concerned officials and others see they cant take bribe any longer would begin to work for th people out fear first, out of concern for the people, in the long run.
Most probably, with AAP sincerely working for the state and nation, India is going to face a basic change in official attitudes and people's mindsets.
Why not call Kejriwal a Bhartratna- not by conferring the recognition on him but by his very positive mindset, meant to change India for the better ?
