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.

    No need to be hyper as no one bothers what this joker Kujli thinks or does.He is a brainless maroon who Aaptards are singing his nautanki songs like 67-3 as if this feat will ever last a recent RTI information it has been revealed that his Govt in Delhi has spent whopping 15 cores in three months on publicity of their failed policies and programmes and this was only to advertise the flop achievements of this joker and his party.His any plan or ldea deserves outright rejection by the higher authority as their own people have started leaving his sinking ship except a few born slaves like BM,PCK,Aron etc.

    One solution is to build a new capital city as part of Centre's own territory moving all the Central administration there. This can be a smart city by;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Leave Delhi as it is and convert it to whatever people want it to.

    AAP in a systematic manner, fulfilling its election promises. BJP under Modi, also in a systematic manner, ignoring its election promises. That is the difference between Arvind Kejriwal and Narendra Damodar Modi.

    Let the dog bark. Nothing is going to happen. Delhi will remain as what is today as per existing law. keji will have to vacate if Delhites want progress, healthy, peaceful and good governance.
