CM Bhagwant Mann announces launch of anti-corruption helpline, On Shaheed Diwas, March 23, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann announced his government’s decision to develop an anti-corruption helpline number. One of the Aam Aadmi Party’s primary electoral promises was a corruption-free Punjab.
“The anti-corruption helpline number will be my personal number. If anybody asks for bribe, send audio and video on that number,” Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann tweeted.
“I am not threatening any govt employee as 99 per cent of govt employees are honest but 1 percent of such employees are corrupt which has rotted the system. Only AAP can clean this corrupt system,” he added in the tweet.
“Corrupt officers have no place in my government and if any such complaint comes to my notice, then don’t expect any sort of sympathy for such officers,” he told the officials who had assembled at the Chief Minister’s Office.
The Chief Minister also announced reward for both civil and police officers. The “Best Performance Award” will be given quarterly for making a difference in the lives of common man at the grassroots level, besides ensuring free and fair justice.
“When someone asks you for a bribe, don’t say no. Instead record the conversation and send the video/audio to the WhatsApp number. We assure you that immediately strict action will be taken,” Kejriwal urged the people of Punjab.
Kejriwal urged Punjab officers to be honest in their work and to serve the people of the state.
