Slamming the Centre, Kumar, who today met his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal at Delhi Secretariat here, said that people voted for Aam Aadmi Party and Kejriwal and people will hold him responsible.
    
"Delhi should get full statehood status. People cast their votes with lot of enthusiasm to form a government. People know those whom they give their votes. People don't understand nitty-gritties.
    
"They (people) think that from law and order to crime and police all come under government's control. In Delhi, police don't come under state government," Kumar said after his meeting with Kejriwal at the Delhi secretariat.
    
He said since the government is accountable to people, the Chief Minister Kejriwal should have the power to choose departmental secretaries.
    
"Which officers will be secretary of which department and if government doesn't have power to do the same...government is accountable towards people. The campaign being run to give full statehood status to Delhi has overwhelming support of people," Kumar also said.
    
The Bihar Chief Minister said his party will raise the issue in the Parliament and try to garner support of other parties.
    
"Our leaders will coordinate with other party leaders and raise the issue in the Parliament to give full statehood status for Delhi," he said.
