Outside their offices, the AAP ministers have pasted a hand-written appeal – “Please don’t embarrass by offering Diwali gifts, including idols of Gods”.

In order to curb corruption in various departments, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had recently asked all ministers, including his deputy Manish Sisodia, to submit their action plan to prevent corruption in their departments.

The Chief Minister’s move had come after CMS-ICS revealed that at least 45 per cent Delhiites believe that there has been a decrease in corruption in state government-controlled services, but there are some departments where corruption has been found evident.
