The AAP is launching the next phase of the campaign from today. The AAP is launching the next phase of the campaign from today.

Two days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said it was taking the campaign forward.

On Saturday, the party launched a WhatsApp helpline and urged the public to send them photos of garbage in their areas, register complaints with local corporation offices and seek their response.

Stating that his party had supported the campaign launched on October 2, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said, “All VIPs returned to their homes after holding brooms for a short while. Now it is the responsibility of the rest of us to monitor our surroundings. The AAP is launching the next phase of the campaign from today.”

The party has asked residents to “WhatsApp photos of garbage” to them on the helpline — 8588833540. The party also urged people to lodge complaints at the local municipal corporation offices.

The former Delhi chief minister also said the complaints will be uploaded on the party’s website, along with photographs, and updates will be posted on the website about the action taken on these complaints.

“We appeal to the people of Delhi to not remain quiet in case they see garbage anywhere. Please click a photograph and submit it to your local civic authority office along with a complaint. Alternately, please send us that photograph with details of the location on the helpline,” Kejriwal said on Saturday. He further said these complaints will be forwarded by the party to the civic bodies.
Kejriwal also pointed out that the mayors of all three municipal corporations in Delhi were “currently from the BJP”.

“We sincerely hope that all the three BJP-controlled corporations of Delhi will leave no stone unturned in making the Prime Minister’s cleanliness campaign a huge success, and that they will immediately take action on the complaints received,” he said.

Starting October 12, the party will also hold a slew of meetings with residents’ welfare associations to discuss “systemic reforms required” to keep the capital clean.

    I am and resident in 5/8/10,1st floor, Geeta Colony, Delhi-110031 My ground floor person is running his business from there house. And he stored all there business stuff in front of the house as well as in the house since last so many year. It is very dirty and unhygienic. He took all the parking area independently for rest of the floors. I told him so may times to remove that stuff but he didn't listen to us infect he is ready to fight. Our welfare ociation members are also not listening. They block the street as well as the parking area. Due to this road blocked, no one cross the street even incase of emergency. And all the other floor members parked there vehicle out side the street which are not safe. I request you to kindly take necessary action at the earliest. Your help is very much appreciated. In support of government of india "SWACH BHARAT" . Thanks in advance Jitendra Malhotra 9811444315

    Very good idea but no one responsible to execute our CM vision of clean delhi. Need to have effective workable and accountable system. God bless our CM to do his duties with courage and good health.
