New Delhi: In a move to urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi government to provide full statehood to Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party legislators led by party Chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal are going to submit over 10 lakh letters to PM Modi, demanding the same.  

The party seems to have been very successful in the signature campaign, which they initiated in July; where they had sought support from the public over the same.


The letters will be submitted by various party leaders; who assembled by Kejriwal’s residence on Monday morning.

"The people of Delhi receive step-motherly treatment from the central government in their own home state. We had started a campaign for full statehood on July 1 and as part of it we started a signature campaign addressed to the prime minister. We have received over 10 lakh signatures," AAP convenor Gopal Rai said.









This comes after a special three-day session of the Delhi Legislative Assembly was held in June to discuss the demand for full statehood for the national capital. The AAP-majority assembly had even passed a resolution in this regard.
