Delhi officer passes bribe test

61431930770_625x300Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal put a blue litmus test to a licence issue officer and found later that he did not accept bribe. His daughter Harshitha applied for a learners’ licence which was denied as she failed to produce a certificate. She stood in the queue and when her turn came the officer bluntly refused to issue the licence saying that a specific certificate was not produced. In spite of repeated appeals and an offer of bribe made by Harshitha the officer did not yield.  She also said she would bribe to any extent as she badly needed the licence. Kejriwal said that they have put a check to the corruption to the extent of 70 to 80 percent, if not completely, after Aap party came to power in Delhi. He also claimed that mention of the word corruption was sending jitters among officers.  Speaking at the auto men agitation he said that his daughter had done an experiment on the subject.


Later, she produced the relevant certificate and submitted the form. Once Kejriwal’s name was found in the application, the officer at once issued licence to Harshitha. Relating this story, Kejriwal told auto men that their government would support those who work honestly.  Aap contested the elections with a call to end corruption as the main agenda. Anti-corruption help line 1031 was again launched after Aap party received the public mandate for the second time. Along with the help line, Aap government also gave publicity for sending videos of corrupt people. In two months 125000 calls were made to the help line number. Based on these calls the Kejriwal government was taking action against the shady officers.
