Dharamvira Gandhi threatens to quit as AAP leader in LS

Dharamvira GandhiAdding an insult to injured Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), senior leader and Member of Parliament from Patiala Dharamvira Gandhi said that he would give up his post as the leader of the party in Lok Sabha.

Mr Gandhi’s outburst came after AAP high command revoked the suspension of a former district convener who was allegedly involved in anti-party activities during the Lok Sabha elections and by-polls last year.

Mr Gandhi wrote a letter to National Convener Arvind Kejriwal expressing his willingness to give up AAP leader’s post in the Lok Sabha. However, he is not willing to resign from the party or as an MP.

The Patiala MP invited a great deal of anger from AAP leaders close to Arvind Kejriwal, when he not only condemned Mr Kejriwal for sacking Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan from the National Executive of the party but also attended the press conference held by two ousted leaders.

He had also vehemently criticised the party leadership for diverting the fundamental principle of the inner party of democracy of AAP.

Mr Gandhi is also annoyed with some party leaders on whose behest his effigies were allegedly burnt across the state and sought action against such leaders from National Convener of the party.
