New Delhi, Jan 6: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that top BJP and Congress leaders like Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi should first express their views on various issues and that they would gradually make their viewpoints known. He said this when asked about his party's views on issues like khap panchayat and Maoism.

A massive controversy broke out on Monday after senior AAP leader Prashant Bhushan demanded a referendum on the deployment of army in the Jammu and Kashmir Valley. The AAP distanced itself from Bhushan and was found trying to control the damage by stressing "a united India" and "distortion of Bhushan's views". Buoyed by the good show in the Delhi assembly polls in December, the AAP has expressed its desire to go national before the Lok Sabha elections due in some months.

"We asked her to go forward and lodge a police complaint," Kejriwal said. He also added that if the act was committed by some innocent kid, the matter would end there.

Kejriwal also said that the government led by his party was working on the draft of the Swaraj bill. He said the Delhi government will announce a helpline number on Wednesday to boost its exercise of curbing corruption.
