Not in this life: Kejriwal declines Ashutosh’s resignation

AAP national convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has seemingly refused to accept journalist-turned-politician Ashutosh’s resignation from the party.

In a tweet, Kejriwal asked how the party could accept Ashutosh’s resignation and said: “not in this life”.

Minutes later, he re-tweeted a post with the photo above, saying: “Sir, we all love you very much”.

Ashutosh announced in a tweet this morning that he will be leaving the party for a ‘very, very personal reason’. “Every journey has an end. My association with AAP which was beautiful/revolutionary has also an end. I have resigned from the PARTY/requested PAC to accept the same. It is purely from a very very personal reason.Thanks to party/all of them who supported me Throughout. Thanks,” he tweeted.

Ashutosh often defended the party in TV news debates, but felt sidelined in recent months, sources said. He was not in AAP’s list of three candidates for a Rajya Sabha seat earlier this year. He has not visited AAP Delhi’s office and kept away from important party activities for the last few months, sources said.
