As the Britons voted to leave the European Union, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on 23 June called for a referendum on statehood for Delhi.

Soon after CM Kejriwal expressed his views, journalist-turned-politician Ashish Khetan seconded the him, stating that it was time to have a referendum on full statehood for Delhi.

The AAP government had released a draft bill on full statehood to Delhi back in May, seeking to bring police, land, municipal corporations and bureaucracy under its control, and invited suggestions from the public till 30 June.

However, the Congress and BJP slammed the Delhi CM saying the move is to create an "environment of conflict" in the city.
