Why does Delhi want full statehood?

NewsBytes

Delhi does have an elected representative, the chief minister. However, the chief minister works with Lieutenant Governor or LG, who is appointed by the central government. Thus, making it difficult for the CM to work efficiently in case of a tussle between the state and the centre. It not only creates confusion but also, puts a burden on the citizens of the state.

Every year Delhi is allotted a fixed amount of money in the budget by the centre, which is way less than what the people of Delhi are paying as annually as tax.
