New Delhi, March 22 (IANS) Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on Tuesday pledged to “establish corruption free state” in the national capital and said the Delhi government is committed to give an honest administration and restore probity in public life.
“The government is steadfastly committed to the establishment of the national capital as a corruption free state and has made every effort to restore probity in public life,” Jung said in his address to the Delhi assembly at the beginning of the budget session.

“My government provides governance and delivery of public services in a transparent and efficient manner,” Jung said, adding that the Arvind Kejriwal government has achieved a lot in its first year by providing affordable and quality services in fields of education, health and public transportation.
“Providing accessible, affordable and quality healthcare facility is of high priority to my government.

“The government’s efforts in organising ‘odd even’ formula during the first fortnight of January this year received overwhelming response from the people and on popular demand, the scheme will be re-launched during the second fortnight of April,” Jung added lauding efforts of the Kejriwal government with whom he had been at loggerheads over several issues.
