Having completed 100 days in office, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday held a jan sabha at the heart of Delhi – Connaught Place - listing down party’s achievements since it attained power in the capital.

The CM added that AAP would need to work in collaboration with the Centre if full statehood for Delhi is to be made a reality.
Informing the public about the party’s achievements, Kejriwal said AAP has focused on 11 areas of development – electricity, water, education, health, women’s safety, JJ colony, unauthorized colony, anti-corruption, traffic, pollution and price-rise. The concerned ministers talked, in brief, on the achievements and future schemes under the 11 subjects:
