    Fighting corruption doesn't come cheap, many lost even their life for it. Fight Kejriwal if you back off the w Delhi will be doomed.Before I though Mr. Modi will do it for the nation and you for Delhi. But Modiji desperately failed(I don't blame him may be his hands are tied or BJP- CORPORATES =0). All those who are vehemently against you are those who want corruption in this country and make money for themselves.

        Delhi police should be handed over to Delhi state govt. Otherwise Thullas will be unable to be controlled and har Delhites.
