Anchor: Arvind Kejriwal is addressing a press conference right now. Let's take you there.
Kejriwal: ...if money is found beyond the known sources of income, it will be implied that he has earned it off corruption.
Now they are talking about amending the law so that the Anti-Corruption Agency will have to prove that it is a result of corruption.
How will those poor fellows prove it?
All the kindness that the Centre has for the corrupt, it means that they haven't learnt their lesson from Delhi elections.
The Delhi elections prove that the people of the nation have made up their minds against corruption.
Parties, either reform yourselves or people will ensure that.
The entire nation is watching the bill that is now in Rajya Sabha, that when the Delhi government, on one hand, is taking concrete steps against corruption,
...look what other parties are doing in the Parliament.
I want to warn all the parties in the Parliament.
If you support the amendment bill in the Rajya Sabha, the people of the nation will teach you a lesson.
It will happen in the general elections. We will launch a nationwide movement against this.
In the end... everyone kept asking me what I was doing against corruption.
If a common man goes to any department, he has to face prospects of bribery.
Whatever I said against it today, I know you will start a dummy trial tomorrow. There will be some shortcomings [that will come to light] in it too.
We will sit together to eradicate that.
There is a possibility that the advisers say some things that you make fun of throughout the day on TV channels.
But we will learn from them and refine it. But now, there will be action against big ticket corruption.
In the coming few days, as you kept saying 'Harshvardhan sahab said this and that', in the coming few days, you will see action against big ticket corruption.
We are preparing its back-end too. If there are any questions...
One by one please.
K: In here, the advisers have been guided. When they call, Dwivedi sahab... you might know Dilip Kumar, ones who cover Delhi beat might know him.
K: We are appointing him as the anti-corruption adviser. He has suggested some ways on how to go about it.
K: So let me tell the touts that even they will be [taken care of]. They will be alert.
J: The anti-corruption department is banned from interacting with the media. Before the 2008 elections, the government had issued a ban.
J: Dilip Kumar was present there too, saying that there will be no interaction with the media,
...that they won't tell the media about what anti-corruption [dept] does.
J: Since last six years, the anti-corruption branch hasn't interacted with the media.
K: We will open the doors, don't you worry. I sit with you all the whole day anyway.
J: This helpline can be misused too...
K: How? Think about it.
J: If a person is corrupt himself and wants to frame someone, he will just give a call...
K: Let him. If a person is asking for a bribe, how does it matter if I am corrupt or not?
K: If an officer is asking for a bribe to do his job, he should go to the jail. How does it matter if I am corrupt?
K: My intentions are not important.
J1: The intentions of his companion are also important...
J2: ...in which people have to struggle to get their work done. But the government is so big that their work is not done.
K: I am with you on this.
J2: If you don't give Rs. 1,200, you won't get food etc. How will you ensure you solve that?
K: I am with you on this.
J3: People take as much as 21 days to get a certificate...
K: Sir, one by one. May I answer his question?
J4: My question is connected to his. The way you are fighting the battle of the common man, do you think such a common man will buy a camera...
K: You don't need to buy a camera. Even an audio-recording will do.
K: Every phone has an audio recording [facility].
J5: How will you expand this? Who will manage it?
K: That's what I was speaking about, sir.
K: We... Bhai, we... Listen, one by one, please. Three questions are pending now. Let me answer them.
K: So... what was your question?
J5: How will you go ahead with this?
K: Like I was saying, if I only had to announce a phone number, it was easy for me to do that in 48 hours.
K: We were checking how big a team will be needed, where will the people come from.
K: That's why I met LG sir. Police teams are kept on standby. All the back-end was readied, sir.
K: I can't tell you that. It will be enough. Don't worry, it will be sufficient for you.
K: As soon as you report it, we will get back to you in 24 hours to set up a trap.
K: If it's the police that has to do everything, how is this different from [dialling] 100? If sting-ops act as a proof...
K: If police works on it, it's a good thing. Let the police work on it, there's also CVC and CBI in Delhi.
K: I am not denying that. This is an additional line.
J7: The police is the main shield to corruption. The way the police works in Delhi...
A: The Delhi government has set up an anti-corruption helpline like it had mentioned earlier.
