Why has it refused this time? How can anybody believe that Congress will fulfil all the promises?"
The Congress who has released it's a manifesto on Tuesday for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections has promised full statehood for Puducherry. The AAP has decided to fight the election on the issue of the granting full-statehood to Delhi.
