BJP govt to launch anti-corruption helpline no: Varun Gandhi

Siliguri: If BJP came to power after the Lok Sabha polls this year, the new government would launch a helpline number to which people could call and register complaints against corrupt officials, BJP general secretary Varun Gandhi said here on Saturday.

"Police stations and other offices have become centres of corruption during the UPA regime. If we come to power, a helpline would be launched for the common people to register their complaints against corrupt officials," Gandhi said at a public meeting here in north Bengal.
Gandhi`s promise came three days after Delhi`s AAP government headed by Arvind Kejriwal launched an anti-corruption helpline number that received a whopping 23,500 calls in one-and-a-half days.

Action would be taken on the basis of such complaints, he said.
Virtually launching the party`s poll campaigning in north Bengal, Gandhi said the BJP government after coming to power would work for the poor as, he claimed, the present dispensation in West Bengal were not working for them.

The Trinamool Congress government in the state was showing step-motherly attitude towards north Bengal, he alleged and urged people to vote for his party to bring in a `new India`.

The Pilibhit MP also promised a special package for north Bengal without elaborating but did not utter a word on Gorkhaland issue of Darjeeling, which had sent senior party leader Jaswant Singh to the Lok Sabha in the 2009 election.
