Ajay Maken Resigns as Delhi Congress Chief After Phoolka Quit AAP


AMN / New Delhi

Within 24 hours, two leaders who were opposed to any alliance between their parties for upcoming general elections have quit their posts, leading to speculation that a tie-up is on the cards. While HS Phoolka resigned from the Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday, sources said Ajay Maken has quit as the Delhi Congress chief.

In a tweet on Friday morning, Maken, the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief, thanked party president Rahul Gandhi and the media for supporting him after the drubbing in 2015 Delhi Assembly elections.


Last year, in April, Maken had submitted his resignation after the grand old party had lost in the municipal elections. The party, however, refused to accept his resignation.

Later in September, according to Congress sources, Maken had expressed his desire to step down from his role owing to health reasons. He had left for Singapore to receive treatment for a debilitating back pain.
