Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is on full swing to provide full statehood to Delhi. Arvind claimed that AAP would campaign for the BJP in the 2019 general election if full statehood is given to Delhi.
"I want to tell BJP that if before 2019 Elections, Delhi is granted statehood, we'll make sure that each and every vote from Delhi goes in your favour, we'll campaign for you. If you don't do so Delhi residents will put up boards saying 'BJP leave Delhi'," Mr Kejriwal said.
