Gopinath, who played the pioneer in introducing low-cost air travel in India, quit the party on Saturday saying there were too much differences in the party leadership and criticised party's face and former chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal for his "hoot and scoot" politics. He communicated his resignation to AAP's Karnataka Convenor Prithvi Reddy. Gopinath, who joined the AAP in January this year, spoke against the party's policies earlier as well and wished the party well for the future.

Yadav also said that Ilmi had spoken to the party about her doubts on its policies and the leadership tried to assure her that her doubts would be looked into but Ilmi couldn't be convinced. Yadav, however, didn't lose hope, saying that Ilmi might consider returning to the AAP if her role was redefined.
Ilmi lost both her electoral battles on the AAP's ticket in the last six months, in the Delhi assembly election and the just concluded Lok Sabha election.
