I also promise that two lakh new jobs will open up within 48 hours of Delhi becoming a full state. Thirdly, all contractual employees will be regularised,” Kejriwal said in his speech at Malviya Nagar.

Delhi CM Kejriwal repeated his promise to give every family a house in 10 years. “The day Delhi gets full statehood, I promise 10 years from then, every family that is a voter from the national Capital will have a house to live in,” the Kejriwal said.

Arvind Kejriwal is continuously pushing to get Delhi full statehood and has made it its main poll planks for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, post-Supreme Courts split verdict on the issue of control over services in Delhi government versus Centre case and referred the matter to a larger bench.

“For every project why should Delhi government seek permission from the Centre? What is the point of winning 67 of the 70 assembly seats if the elected government has no power? In 70 years, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Odisha, Assam, and Goa became full states, but Delhi is still stuck. What wrong have Delhiites done to face this partiality?” Kejriwal said.
