The Kejriwal legacy from insiders: He came, he conquered, he lost

Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, March 24:Ask the office-bearers of the party in Gurgaon and you would know what we meant when we say that. Complaining of undemocratic policies and escapism, close to 250 party workers resigned from their positions on Sunday.

They submitted their resignations to Arvind Kejriwal at the Ramlila Maidan where his roadshow was concluded yesterday.

Ramesh Yadav, one of the senior-most party workers said that even the Gurgaon Unit's general secretary and treasurer resigned with him.

250 party workers resign. Earlier, AAP had 400 workers in Gurgaon.

He said,""There has been unrest within the Gurgaon unit for the past four weeks regarding the kind of actions the party has taken. Look at Delhi. They have run from their responsibilities. They are giving tickets to candidates who don't have a clean record. The decision-making in the party is no longer democratic and happens behind closed doors. They say something and do something else."

He further complained that Arvind Kejriwal and Yogendra Yadav (the party's Gurgaon candidate) and Kejriwal paid no heed to their demands. He said,"Yogendra Yadav would say that it is not in his hands and that the party will decide. Kejriwal would listen to us, even accept that some things went wrong, but then do nothing."

However, inside sources said that Ramesh Yadav was unsettled by the scores of new faces that have sidelined him. He was among the founder members of the party in Gurgaon. According to the sources, his resignation would be a big setback for the AAP party as Yadav has a huge clout in certain pockets of Gurgaon.
