The party, that is currently embroiled in a sting operation, conducted by news portal, Media Sarkar, that alleges AAP members of taking donations without following procedures, took a hard blow when a member quit over the sting tapes.
'Instead of crying conspiracy, the party must examine the whole issue'
The AAP member in question is Nutan Thakur, from Lucknow, who resigned on Nov 24 after the news of the sting operation, came out in the public. "I have resigned from the party after I saw the way the party handled the sting operation," she said.
Thakur was not holding any position in the party but was a member.
Thakur expressed her unhappiness and said that AAP was created with the help of the media and now it is blaming the media itself. "Instead of crying conspiracy, the party must examine the whole issue," she said.
AAP spokesperson Manish Sisodia expressed his concern over Thakur's resignation and said that the party was more concerned about the members and the volunteers who had worked day and night for the party. "Such people should leave the party because they have not actively participated in the party's activities," he said.
