Hand over ACB and police to Delhi Government. We will deliver in a year," the chief minister tweeted.

According to media reports, the study conducted by Centre for Media Studies (CMS) - India Corruption Study 2015, shows 45% of residents surveyed found reduction in corruption across departments of Delhi Government vis-à-vis those of Central government.
