New Delhi, Oct 8: In an attempt to clean the national capital, the former Delhi chief minister and AAP founder Arvind Kejriwal launched a helpline number on WhatsApp, on Tuesday.

On this number- 8588833540, Delhiites can upload pics of garbage, filth and dirt to report to the municipal corporations.

"If civic bodies don't register their complaints, people should take photos of dirt and filth in their mobile phones and send them to the number through our WhatsApp helpline with particular area location", Kejriwal was quoted as saying while launching the helpline.

According to reports, AAP MLAs had submitted more than 2000 pics of garbage, filth and dirt to the BJP's three Mayors in MCD.

In a series of twets, Kejriwal had written, ".....wud swacch bharat mean only shramdan on 2 oct or does it mean really having clean India? Ultimately, cleaning has to be done by MCD...." (sic).

".....BJP has been in power in MCD for last 7 years. Will they clean it up now as per PM's wishes?", he said in another tweet.

"AAP leaders- Manish Sisodia, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh and Rakhi Birla, met Yogender Chandolia, Meenakshi and Khushi Ram, the Mayors of the North, East and South civic bodies respectively" The Hindu reported.

However, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay took a dig at Kejriwal's move by saying, "The people of Delhi are well aware of his flop shows like Janta Darbar outside Delhi Secretariat but now when the BJP-led Central Government has launched a public participatory cleanliness drive, he wants overnight results."

After a 49-day stint of power in Delhi, AAP is now trying to win back the lost faith of Delhi's people, in its party again.
