AAP leader Ashutosh quits party
New Delhi (India), Aug 15 (ANI): Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh resigned from the party on Wednesday citing personal reasons.
This comes after an alleged rift in the party over the nomination to the three Rajya Sabha seats in January this year.
He said, "My association with AAP which was beautiful and revolutionary and has come to an end. I have resigned from the party, requested PAC to accept the same. It is purely for a very very personal reason."
The leader also appealed to the media to allow him privacy and took to social networking site Twitter to write, "To media friends. Please respect my privacy. I won't be giving any bite of any kind. Please cooperate."
The journalist-turned-politician had left journalism to join AAP in 2014. He was the spokesperson of the Party.
More details awaited. (ANI)
