70 percent Delhiites say corruption not reduced: Survey

New Delhi: Seventy percent of the people surveyed by a “citizen engagement platform” associated with the BJP, believe that corruption has not reduced in Delhi under the Arvind Kejriwal government, but nearly 50 percent said they would vote for the AAP again.

However, 48 percent hold the odd-even plan was a successfully executed experiment, said a survey report on first year of the Aam Aadmi Party government released on Saturday.

“Seventy percent believe corruption has not reduced in Delhi in the last one year,” said the survey conducted by LocalCircles, a citizen engagement platform that connects citizens at local, city and national level and has a partnership with the Bharatiya Janata Party`s information cell.

“Forty-eight percent believe that the odd-even rule was a successfully executed experiment,” it said, adding that a similar segment say that they will vote for the AAP if elections were held again now.

In a press statement, the organisation said that the survey showed 32 percent citizens find that the current legislators are more engaged with people than former lawmakers, but only 16 percent believe that the current government has kept pace with the infrastructure development work done by the previous government and also believed that starting of a new business and registration of licences in city has gotten easier.

“Only 17 percent citizens believe that the life of financially poor has gotten better,” says the survey.

It said 39 percent of the survey respondents believe that the AAP government has been able to improve water supply, and 37 percent say it has been able to reduce power bills.
