AAP wants Delhi to be first 'corruption-free state': Alka Lamba

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Alka Lamba on Monday said her party dreams of making Delhi the first corruption-free state in the country.

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Alka Lamba on Monday said her party dreams of making Delhi the first corruption-free state in the country.

"We look upon Delhi as an ideal state which has been led on the path of progress. It is our dream to see Delhi as the first corrupt-free state of the country. It is this ideology, this ambition which is forcing people to compare and question the Central government with the state with regards to how much the former has achieved in the past one year to bring about developmental changes in Delhi," Lamba told ANI here.

"In these 100 days, we had promised big things like power and water. And, we have carried out those promises. We fought against corruption. This government is for the common people, elected by the common people, elected by the common people of the state. So the real power of making decision lies with them," she added.

Lamba also took pot-shots at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying theirs was a governance of petty politics and show-off.

"After completing one year of governance, the BJP has held 200 jan sabhas, 5000 small sabhas, and some 200 rallies. The purpose of this is that they want to ask person to person whether they have been able to stash 15 lakhs in their pockets or not. Theirs is a governance of petty politics and show-off," said Lamba.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold the 'Jan Samvad' at the Central Park in Connaught Place today to mark the AAP government's 100 days in power.
