The seven-day session of Delhi Assembly ended on Tuesday with Kejriwal's assurance to the House that his government will take into account all the issues raised by the opposition.

Replying to the vote of thank motion on the Lieutenant Governor's address, Kejriwal said, "You (BJP and Congress MLAs) have done a good job. We are new (to the House).

Considering us as one of you, please keep scolding us on our mistakes. Don't let us sleep and keep us on our toes.”

"We may have shortcomings and may lack vision, but our intention is pure," he added.

Calling for better coordination between members of the opposition and government, he said 28 MLAs cannot handle the situation alone.

"That will happen later, but at least all 70 members should have coordination," he added.

He added that ‘Swaraj’ (self-rule) cannot be brought without dialogue. "This is not about BJP, Congress or AAP. We have to work together for our future and our children's future," the Chief Minister said.

"Many issued which were raised by the House members were not part of the Lt Governor's speech but they are equally important. I want to assure the House that I will take into account all the points," he said.

The last day of the Delhi Assembly session started with BJP MLA Jagdish Mukhi objecting to the Speaker's decision to start the session with discussion on the Lt Governor's address.

Mukhi pointed out that Leader of Opposition Harsh Vardhan was not allowed to speak when he tried to raise an issue on Monday.

"It's the privileges of the MLAs to seek attention on the issues and under the Rule, the Speaker should include that into the agenda of the day and allow the member to have discussion on it before going ahead with any other business, especially on a day when question hour is not a part of the agenda,” he said.

“The Lt Governor’s speech is an important document on government's policies. I am saddened because it replicates AAP manifesto,” he added.
