Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has released the draft of State of Delhi Bill, 2016. The bill seeks to establish the State of Delhi as the 30th State in the country. The proposed State will comprise the territories of the existing National Capital Territory of Delhi. At present, NCT Delhi is one of the seven Union Territories of the country.
The bill seeks to replace the term Lieutenant Governor with Governor. He would act on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers as provided in Article 163 of the Constitution. Delhi Police will be made accountable to the elected Government of Delhi. The New Delhi area which is under the control of the NDMC will be under the Union Government for matters of law, order and land while the remaining areas will be under the Delhi State.
So let’s do:
1. Name the state, which has released the draft of State of Delhi Bill, 2016 ?
2. Who is the Governor of Delhi ?
