AAP Minister Resigns, Quits Party Citing

AAP Minister Resigns, Quits Party Citing "Corruption

Delhi Minister Raaj Kumar Anand recently tendered his resignation from both his ministerial post and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). His departure was motivated by what he perceives as the party's shift from its roots as an anti-corruption force to one entangled in corrupt practices. This sentiment was particularly fueled by the Delhi liquor policy case and the subsequent arrests of key AAP figures, including party chief Arvind Kejriwal and former deputy Manish Sisodia.

In explaining his decision, Mr. Anand emphasized his initial attraction to AAP's strong stance against corruption. He expressed disappointment at the party's current state, which he believes contradicts its original ethos. "I joined AAP after seeing its strong message on fighting corruption. Today, the party has found itself in the middle of corrupt practices. That's why I have decided to quit," Mr. Anand remarked.

During his resignation announcement, Mr. Anand also reflected on his journey into politics, recalling Arvind Kejriwal's promise that changing politics would lead to a changed nation. However, he noted with regret that while the politics itself hadn't transformed, the politicians had. "Today, I am very sad, so I have come to share my sorrow. I came into politics when Arvind Kejriwal had said that rajniti badlegi toh desh badlega (if politics changes, the country will change). Rajniti toh nahi badli, lekin rajneta badal gaye (politics has not changed, but politicians have)," Mr. Anand expressed.

Following Mr. Anand's resignation, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj alleged that Mr. Anand was forced out "under pressure" by the BJP. However, Mr. Anand himself did not confirm or suggest any external pressure as a factor in his decision to step down.
