Commenting on the ongoing tussle between the AAP chief and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, Yadav said Kejriwal and his government should handle the situation tactfully with patience. The AAP defector, however, stood by Kejriwal on the issue of full statehood for Delhi, saying, "Primarily, demand for full statehood for Delhi is legitimate."

"To get full statehood and resolve the current political crisis, the AAP government must handle the situation carefully. They need to understand the situation with patience," cited Yadav, adding that however, there is a complete lack of all these fronts in the present government.

"Instead of political wisdom, legal preparedness and patience, what we see is tussle and confrontation with Centre, mud-sledging and lock-downs of offices," Yadav added.

He mentioned if such activities continue, it is doubtful that people of Delhi would ever get status of full statehood even in distant future. Yadav on the occasion defended the Kejriwal Government on reneging from poll promises and going 'slow' with plans.
