Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will announce the draft bill of statehood to Delhi on Monday. The draft bill will be made public to seek suggestions from the public.
The final draft will be tabled in the coming session of Delhi assembly, following which it will be sent to the Centre for approval.
The Parliament will have to amend the NCT act to grant statehood to Delhi.
The bill will open a new avenue in the existing power tussle between the Delhi government and the Centre.
Apart from the appointment of officers and privatization of IDBI bank, control of Delhi Police has been an issue of tiff between the two.
