"For 65 years, corruption was not controlled, we brought it down in 30-35 days even if only by 20-30% and they say we don't known how to govern?" Kejriwal had said.

"Transparency International, in a report which hasn't been released in India yet, says that in the past 45 days corruption has come down in Delhi. This is by itself an achievement of AAP," she said.

Ashutosh Kumar Mishra, Executive Director, Transparency International India, in a press release, denied the existence of any such report.

"The information shared by Ms Shazia Ilmi is factually incorrect. We have not undertaken any study on corruption in Delhi and so there is no question of any such published or unpublished report," the press release said.
