Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday assured that the proposed Janlokpal bill will be passed by the Delhi Assembly in its ongoing winter session.

Speaking at the Aam Aadmi Party’s National Council meet, Kejriwal said that the bill was unchanged, except for the exclusion of the citizen charter and vigilance, both of which would be implemented separately.

He also claimed that the party was implementing “the idea of Swaraj through executive orders and not through legislation, because Centre would never clear it”.

The National Council is the body of founding members of the AAP, which ratifies all decisions taken by the party. The National Executive is its second highest decision-making body.

According to the party’s constitution, the National Executive has to be reconstituted every three years. The tenure of the present members of the National Executive ends this month.
