MCD Polls: Arvind Kejriwal Admits Corruption Persists in Delhi

Today, most top bureaucrats and the employees working under them are morally corrupt. Arvind Kejriwal has failed to realize that Delhi Government workers are, in fact, shirkers.

Finally, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, who had won the Delhi assembly election 2 years ago with the promise to end corruption, has admitted that corruption is still rampant in his regime.

In other words, despite his rhetoric, Kejriwal government has failed to stop corruption. This is evident from his new slogan to woo the voters in the upcoming Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) election.

Kejriwal has once again promised to weed out corruption – which simply means that corruption is still the lifeblood of government officials. And that is true as hell.

In his new election slogan Kejriwal says that public will not have to bribe to get their work done in government offices. But he fails to realize that it is not only the bribe, but bureaucratic inefficiency is also the worst form of corruption.

Today, most top bureaucrats and the employees working under them are morally corrupt. Kejriwal must know that Delhi Government workers are, in fact, shirkers.

They refuse to work and respond to public grievances. And they keep tossing their files from one desk to another without taking any decision for the general well-being of citizens.

As these good-for-nothing bureaucrats and their underlings are being paid with public money that they don’t deserve, a new form of corruption has creeped into Delhi offices – right under Kejriwal’s nose.

When Kejriwal has no control on such corrupt officials as the chief minister of Delhi, how will he check the rising tide of corruption as the head of MCD? Most in Delhi must be scratching their heads to figure out the logic behind Kejriwal’s assertion.

The truth is that no politician in India can deal with corruption because corruption is an integral part of Indian politics. If a political leader wants to fight corruption, the system will automatically throw them out of politics. That holds true for Kejriwal, too.

So, those leaders who promise to end corruption are liars. The voters must not trust them. Rather, the commoners like us must learn to live with corruption – financial corruption as well as moral corruption – which is part of our destiny.
