New Delhi, Jan 18: The Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal told NDTV on Saturday that AAP government has achieved more than what people and the party expected in three weeks. Dismissing off the allegations raised by other parties, Kejriwal said, "BJP, Congress can say what they want to but they certainly can't say that I am corrupt".

Kejriwal also denied the allegation that AAP is biased against Nigerians and Ugandans in Delhi. "We have absolutely nothing against Nigerians, Ugandans or people from any other country, they are our respected guests", he said.

Refuting the allegations that an African woman was forced to urinate in public during a night raid conducted by minister Somnath Bharti, Kejriwal said, "I am defending Somnath Bharti, don't think he is an embarrassment to the party". The woman was not forced to urinate in public, but the urinate sample was taken at AIIMS, the CM said. Warrant is not required to arrest a person in narcotics case, he added.

On Delhi police

The CM reiterated his statement on Delhi police. Delhi police is corrupt and has to be held accountable for crimes in the city, he said. On the suspension of 3 cops recently, he said, "If cops are not suspended, probe will become an eyewash".The AAP can run the government even while sitting in a dharna, he said.

"Somnath Bharati does not have anything against the women. He asked the police to take action but they refused to. Delhi Police is corrupt. They extort money from auto-wallahs and roadside stalls", he said.

On corrupt ministers

"I will take strict action against my ministers if they do something wrong", CM said. "The Chief Justice of Delhi didn't feel that Bharti calling a judges meeting was an interference. He infact welcomed it", said Kejriwal.

To Congress

The impression that Kejriwal is soft on Congress will end in some days, said the CM. Congress will face defeat in General Elections as well. They will lose the way they lost in Delhi. Delhi will be repeated at the national level, he said. "If need be, I will fight the Lok Sabha elections. I will do what the party wants.I am not a PM candidate", he added.

"You have to transfer the power into the hands of the people. Self-governance is important. I would like to tell Rahul Gandhi that now people don't vote for people who make good and interesting speeches ", said Kejriwal. Congress is not using us, we are not being used by Congress to stop Modi. Congress is not capable of that., he said.


On the recent controversies around his party, Kejriwal said, "There is no anarchy in our party, it is freedom of expression. Ordinary members of our party are free to express their opinions. Office bearers however have to be in line the with party position, they can't speak in two voices".

He concluded saying, "We don't want to stop anyone, we want to stop the dirty politics in the country".
