"Incompetence of the state leadership and acute disinterest of Delhi leadership for Karnataka unit has led to my decision", is what AAP's popular face Ravi Krishna Reddy said while resigning as AAP's Co-Convenor-Karnataka. The resignation has definitely come as a blow to the party that is yet to find a standing in Karnataka politics.
Ravi Krishna Reddy who was AAP's candidate for assembly polls from Ramnagar in 2013 took to social media to announce his decision. OneIndia has learnt from sources that the he may soon resign from the party's primary membership.
Mincing no words, Reddy has slammed at the state leadership. Talking to OneIndia, he said, " I am resigning from my post of co-convenor as of now. Karnataka unit is becoming increasingly irrelevant. 8 out of 14 core committee members can't have a casual conversation in Kannada. The state leadership is incompetent".
It is not just the state leadership that has angered Ravi Krishna Reddy. "It has been 9 months since the observer for Karnataka, Pankaj Gupta visited the state. Clearly shows that the Delhi leadership isn't serious about Karnataka unit. Repeated letters to Delhi leadership has yielded no results", said Ravi Krishna Reddy showing dissapointment over AAP's disinterest in Karnataka.
With less than 15 months for the election, Reddy's resignation has made cracks in the Karnataka unit of AAP wide.
