Enthused by Aam Aadmi Party's performmajority in Delhi assembly elections, the Haryana unit of party on Saturday launched a helpline number -- 9050906161 -- to help the 'common man' report corrupt officials.

Senior leader, Naveen Jaihind whose party stunned everyone by bagging 67 assembly seats in a house of 70, said that a state-level meet has been called in Rohtak on Sunday wherein issues cropping up against the Bharatiya Janata Party regime in Haryana would be deliberated.

In a press release, Jaihind who hails from Rohtak and unsuccessfully contested Lok Sabha polls, said that if anyone faces difficulty in getting his work done at government offices owing to corruption, they can either call this number or videograph the act on their mobiles and forward it to them through WhatsApp.

"Rest of the job would be taken care by volunteers of the party, who would force chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar's government to act sternly against such officials and get the complainant's work done without harrasement", he added.

Elaborating on the party's plan to expand its base in rest of country, the AAP leader said that presently they would focus on strengthening party organisational structure in terms of resources and members.

On the party's plans for the state Jaihind said that inorder to keep a tab on the working of the government, they would form a shadow cabinet of party volunteers who would provide them inputs to raise pro-public issues on time.

Jaihind said that party volunteers would also be felicitated during Sunday's meeting for their contribution in the spectacular victory in Delhi.

Notably, the party which came into existence after the India Against Corruption movement in 2012, has many of its top leaders from the state including its national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Yogendra Yadav.
