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.

With the AAP government and the Centre at loggerheads over distribution of powers, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal made a prologue by talking about the Delhi high court order that now restricts the Centre from intervening in affairs of Delhi’s anti-corruption branch.

“When we were in power for 49 days the last time, we had filed a case against Mukesh Ambani in the anti-corruption branch. The Centre, that time, had said that the branch could only review performance of Delhi officials. But now the HC has clearly marked that the Centre has no business in Delhi’s anti-corruption branch,” said Kejriwal. 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.
