Arvind Kejriwal made the announcement of re-launching up the anti-corruption helpline, a tried and tested tool, to connect with people of Delhi. The AAP announced a helpline number 1031 for the people of Delhi to lodge their grievances against the authorities.

Aam Aadmi Party Arvind Kejriwal leader wrote on twitter: “Congratulations Delhi !! #AAPHelpLine is there to serve you. Dial 1031 to report Corruption.”

After re-launching the helpline number, Arvind Kejriwal said, “Last time our party was in power for 49 days, we had launched this helpline. We are re-launching it today. We have the courage to take action against our own party members if they are wrong. If tomorrow Sisodia is found corrupt, he will go to jail. I will also go to jail if found corrupt. We are dedicated to make Delhi corruption-free. We will use technology on a large-scale to make Delhi top five corruption-free cities in the world in 5 years”

The helpline received more than 12,000 calls in 24 hours with most of the calls inquiring about how to register corruption case with the Anti Corruption Branch (ACB).
