AAP’s Karnataka co-convener quits party


Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, the Aam Aadmi Party in Karnataka Tuesday suffered a jolt when its state co-convener Shivakumar Chengalraya quit the party accusing the central leadership of ignoring Karnataka.

“I quit because you know that it (AAP) is losing relevance. Every one of us has contributed for it. Blaming Prithvi Reddy, (party’s national executive member from Karnataka) alone will not serve the purpose. The national team also kept on ignoring us (Karnataka unit of AAP). Even today it continues,” Chengalraya told PTI.
