Delhi chief minister Arvind Keriwal plans to conduct a referendum to decide if the national capital should be granted status of a state.

Kejriwal has asked the urban development department to come up with a feasibility report specifying a timeline for the referendum, according to an official source.

"Do a referendum in Delhi. Draft a law and create machinery for referendum," a note by the CM - Hindustan Times has a copy of it - said to the urban department and other sections of the government.

The CM has also asked the urban and legal departments to speed up work on a Delhi statehood bill that will be sent to the Centre for its consent.
