Shazia Ilmi quits AAP

more-in

Aam Aadmi Party leader Shazia Ilmi has resigned from the party and from membership of all of the party’s forums.

“I am leaving AAP because of the absence of inner party democracy in a party which talks of swaraj. The party is being run by a coterie which takes impulsive decisions and we get to learn about them later,” she said.

The senior party leader said that It was not enough to just name corporates and politicians.

"It's true that sensationalism may have helped us, but it has become like law of diminishing returns."

"The party seems to be directionless. AAP needs to reinvent itself. We need to do more than just agitations and protests," added Ms. Ilmi.

She remarked that Arvind Kejriwal should pay his bail bond and spend time with the party's workers and candidates.

Ms. Ilmi said that she wouldn't be joining any other political party.
