Delhi anti-corruption chief minister Arvind Kejriwal quits

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has resigned after an anti-corruption bill was blocked in the state assembly.

Opposition politicians blocked the bill, which would have created an independent body with the power to investigate politicians and civil servants suspected of corruption.

They argued it was unconstitutional to introduce legislation that did not have the approval of the federal government.

The BBC's Sanjoy Majumder said many would see Mr Kejriwal's resignation as "a political tactic".
