Statehood for Delhi? - Hardcover, EnglishThe founding fathers of the Constitution were unambiguous, categorical and crystal clear that the concept of Statehood for Delhi is impractical and cannot be given effect to as long as Delhi remains India’s Federal capital and the seat of Central Government.
However, notwithstanding unanimity of views expressed by them, some political parties at the local level, driven unabashedly by narrow vested interests and in contradiction to the vision and wisdom of our national icons, continued to demand full Statehood for Delhi from time to time.
Thanks to the maturity and sophistication of Delhi voters, they have now bottled up the issue by puncturing the plank of Statehood in the recently concluded Parliamentary elections, 2019 by not giving even a single seat in Lok Sabha to the protagonists of this concept.
An unmissable book on the subject which unravels many mysteries.
