ANJALI Damania, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and AAP secretary Preeti Menon on Thursday resigned from the party.
Activist-turned-politician Damania, had contested the recent Lok Sabha elections against BJP leader Nitin Gadkari from Nagpur and lost. Damania stood at the fourth position by securing 69,081 votes.
45-year-old Damania, refused to state any reasons on her sudden decision to quit the party, and said she only wished the “best” for AAP.
Addressing AAP colleagues on Wednesday Damania said, “dear colleagues, with a heavy heart, I am ending my association with AAP. My greatest regards for Arvind (Kejriwal), who is like an elder brother. All I want to request is that please do not have conspiracy theories over my exit.”
“Minor organisational issues like complaints against the behaviour of committee members by AAP workers and lack of communication at various levels were irritating Anjali (Damania) and Preeti (Menon), said a AAP leader.
