AAP plans to launch anti-corruption units
Demanding the removal of Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) chief Mukesh Kumar Meena, AAP said that if the central government and the Lt. Governor interfere in their work, the party will set up several anti-corruption units here.
"Many small anti-corruption units will be established in different wards of the state," party leader Kumar Vishwas said at a press conference. He accused the central government and Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung of interfering in the proper functioning of the ACB.
Vishwas said they will constitute such units controlled by party volunteers if the central government and the Lt. Governor try to weaken their anti-corruption movement.
Meena was appointed as ACB chief by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on June 8 superseding Additional Commissioner S.S. Yadav. The Delhi government has objected to the appointment of Meena.
Party leader Dilip Pandey said the prime agenda of the party was to fight against corruption. "We cannot tolerate corruption. AAP is committed to abolish corruption," Pandey said.
