Shazia Ilami, Capt. Gopinath Quits Aam Aadmi Party

Blaming a lack of inner party democracy in Aam Aadmi Party, Shazia Ilmi, one of its founder members, resigned from all party positions on Saturday.

In a press conference on Saturday, Ilmi praised the contribution of the party to the Indian politics but added that its leader Arvind Kejriwal is guided by an inner coterie which does not allow democracy within the party. Sadly the party talks about democracy all this while, she added.

In another development, party member Captain (retd.) GR Gopinath also quit the party on Saturday.

Ilmi said she was not the alone in the party who felt marginalized but she was the first to speak out.
