AAP government is strict against corruption:
Taking action against his minister, Chief Minister Mann said that our party is strict to the core on corruption and the same has been guided by the party supremo Kejriwal.

Corruption issue was also raised in the Punjab Assembly:
People will be aware that during the Punjab Assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party had fiercely attacked the ruling Congress on corruption.
