The Trouble With Kejriwal's Referendum Proposal

Now that 81% in this polls have said resounding "Yes" on referendum question, the AAP leadership is free to score the political goals on this issue. Hopefully they will spare the wastage of public money on this exercise and use the same for some better public welfare projects. In comparison, Arvind Kejriwal's call for a referendum in Delhi on the issue of full statehood for Delhi seems a minor point of conflict. However, any move to put executive decisions to public poll may open a pandora's box.
