Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday will release the draft bill of statehood to the national capital and it will be made public to seek opinions and suggestions from citizens.

The final draft will be tabled in the coming session of the Delhi Assembly and will be then sent to the Union government as statehood is subject to parliamentary approval.

Earlier, former Union home minister LK Advani had also tabled the Statehood Bill of Delhi as it was a poll promise by several parties at that time.

It will also open another gateway of confrontation between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government and the Centre as there are already many crucial bills pending before the MHA that await clearance.
