Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal here on Tuesday advised his Delhi counterpart and Aam Aadmi Party chief, Arvind Kejriwal, to bring administrative reforms in Delhi on the lines of those in Punjab.


"Kejriwal should introduce administrative reforms in Delhi and the Delhi government should follow the Punjab model in this regard," he told reporters here. On AAP leader H S Phulka's suggestion to appoint a Punjab-cadre officer to head Delhi government's proposed special investigation team (SIT) on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Sukhbir said, "I have no idea about the Delhi lieutenant governor's (LG) nod for constituting the SIT."

The SAD chief, however, said his party would continue its fight for justice to the riot victims. On the stand of four SAD MLAs on Delhi government's proposed Jan Lokpal Bill, Sukhbir said the problem of graft could not be eliminated altogether by establishing such an institution.

When reporters asked a volley of questions pertaining to AAP and Kejriwal, he said, "I think you are satisfied with the performance of the Punjab government." All government offices in Punjab would be connected online soon, the he said.
