Delhi will soon have a referendum on full statehood: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Inspired by the Brexit vote, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday call for a referendum on full statehood of Delhi.

He tweeted, "After UK referendum, Delhi will soon have a referendum on full statehood."

Another AAP leader, Ashish Khetan, repeated the demand, tweeting, "After the UK referendum on EU exit, it's time to have a referendum on full statehood of Delhi. In a democracy the will of the ppl is supreme."

On May 18, the AAP government unveiled its draft of the State of Delhi Bill, 2016, proposing the complete handing over of administrative power including police, law and order and land to the Delhi government.

However, they said the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) could be under the control of Centre.
