A day after Aam Aadmi Party’s defeat in the Delhi municipal elections, senior leader Sanjay Singh on Thursday resigned as its Punjab in-charge.
The co-incharge for Punjab, Durgesh Pathak, also resigned. Both have submitted their resignations to AAP Convenor Arvind Kejriwal.
“I have submitted my resignation from the post of Punjab in-charge to Arvind Kejriwal. Durgesh (Pathak) has also resigned from his co-incharge post for the state,” Singh tweeted in the morning.
The BJP won 181 of the 270 wards for which elections were held. Thw AAP could win in just 48 wards and the Congress was way behind with 30 seats.
That AAP’s popularity has slipped after the latest round of the assembly polls, when it failed to perform in Punjab up to its expectations and drew a blank in Goa.
