Kejriwal to seek Full Statehood for Delhi at Public Meeting

New Delhi, May 25: Amid a row with the Centre over a notification giving Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung all powers over transfers and posting of officials, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers will hold a "Jan Sabha" today to mark 100 days of the AAP government.

During the public meet, Kejriwal is expected to demand full statehood for Delhi, a key move in its ongoing tussle with the LG and against what his party calls "bulldozing" by the BJP-led Central government.

The public meeting will be held at the central park in Connaught Place where Kejriwal and his ministers will highlight achievements of the 100-day old AAP government.

At a meeting of its legislators on Sunday, the AamAadmi Party described the home ministry notification of Thursday as "unconstitutional", and the government has decided to call a special assembly session on May 26-27 to discuss the central order.
