The Aam Admi Party government in Delhi was committed to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill.  This would have been an important measure to fight corruption in public life in Delhi. However, the manner in which this was introduced in the Legislative Assembly was politically erroneous and inexpedient.

By not going through the procedure for the permission of the Lt. Governor to introduce the Bill, the AAP tactics provided the opportunity for the BJP and Congress to gang up to thwart this measure in the Assembly leading to the resignation of Kejriwal.
