AAP govt facing obstacles due to anti-corruption stance, says Kejriwal

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party government is facing "obstacles" in governing as it has not entered into any "setting" unlike the previous dispensations in the national capital, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday.

Kejriwal took on BJP and Congress, alleging both the parties have "similar characters" in terms of being "corrupt and exploitative". He said that the task taken up during the Anna Hazare-led anti-corruption movement was continuing.

"Some people wonder as to why the previous Delhi governments did not face any such trouble. We too would have had a smooth ride had we not tried to shake the prevailing system. Previous governments had entered into settings...For example, we could have entered into a setting with power companies. But our stance is of zero corruption. We took suo motu action against our minister based on an SMS by throwing him out of the Cabinet," he said.

The AAP chief was speaking at the launch of 'Bhagat Singh's Jail Notebook' at an event. The Delhi government will make the book available in school libraries, he said.
