Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said not a "single paisa" of corruption was found against his government as he assured AAP volunteers that till he was alive, the party would remain "honest".

Addressing the volunteers of the Aam Aadmi Party in Rohini, Kejriwal said there were fights and conflicts in every family and it was the same within the AAP.

"A volunteer complained to me about conflicts and fights within the party. Fights and conflicts can happen in any family, but one thing I want to assure you is that you will never hear about corruption or dishonesty in the party or in the government run by us till I am alive," he said.

The AAP supremo said in the last five years, a lot of work was done by the Delhi government, but not a "single paisa of corruption was reported against us".

Motivating the party cadre, he said they should fight the Delhi Assembly polls, due early next year, not for the AAP but for the country's development.

On the cancellation of his Denmark visit, Kejriwal claimed that no one invited BJP mayors to such prestigious conferences, because "everyone knows the reality of the MCD".

The AAP supremo was not able to attend the C-40 Climate Summit in Denmark on October 11 after the Ministry of External Affairs refused political clearance to his visit. He later addressed the summit through a video link.

Kejriwal claimed that his government's work gained more popularity after he was not allowed to visit Denmark.

"The BJP did not let me go, but I was happy that the organisers asked me to participate through video-conferencing. This is not my pride, but the pride of you people (volunteers)," he said.

The chief minister urged the volunteers to take leave from work and start preparing for the Delhi polls.

He asserted that each and every individual living in the national capital was benefitted by his government's policies and because of the work done by them in the last five years, even Congress and BJP workers would vote for the AAP in the upcoming polls.

"The work done by the Delhi government has earned us respect. Now when you tell people that you are associated with the Aam Aadmi Party, people look up to you," Kejriwal told the cadre.
