Do you also support referendum in J&K? Congress asks AAP

Hitting out at the Aam Aadmi Party government's decision to hold referendum on the issue of full statehood to Delhi, Congress leader Manish Tewari on Tuesday wondered whether Arvind Kejriwal-led party wanted the same for Jammu and Kashmir.



New Delhi: Hitting out at the Aam Aadmi Party government's decision to hold referendum on the issue of full statehood to Delhi, Congress leader Manish Tewari on Tuesday wondered whether Arvind Kejriwal-led party wanted the same for Jammu and Kashmir.

On microblogging website Twitter, Tewari said: 

The BJP has also slammed the move of AAP government, saying it was an example of the party's "anarchist nature" and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was raising this "non constitutional proposal" to fulfil his political dreams.

Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said that the proposal of going for a referendum on the issue of full statehood was yet another evidence of the Aam Aadmi Party and its Chief Minister's "anti constitution anarchist nature".

The Delhi CM recently discussed the referendum plan with his Cabinet colleagues. The note from the Chief Minister said: "Do a referendum in Delhi. Draft a law and create machinery for referendum."

He has asked the Urban Development Department to come up with a feasibility report specifying a timeline. The department was asked to give various options available to the government for conducting such a referendum.
