"I am not working against the Constitution. I am just working to send the corrupt to prison," Kejriwal said.

His reaction followed media reports which stated that Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung has sought the Solicitor General's opinion on the Lokpal Bill that the Delhi Cabinet has cleared.

The reports also said that the bill needs to go through the Lt. Governor’s office and requires clearance from the Central government before it is enacted.

"Now they are saying that the Delhi Assembly cannot pass bills and we need the approval from the Central government. If we cannot pass legislation, then why were the elections held?" questioned Kejriwal.

Maintaining his opinion over the fact that whether sending the corrupt to prison is against the Constitution, Kejriwal also took a dig at the Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Lt. Governor and the Solicitor General.

“The Solicitor General has told the Lt. Governor that the AAP's Jan Lokpal Bill is against the Constitution," he said.
