Shazia Ilmi likely to quit AAP

Shazia Ilmi, one of the founder members of the AAP, is understood to be considering resigning from the party.

Party sources said Ilmi was unhappy with the party leadership on certain issues, including the choice of her Lok Sabha constituency Ghaziabad from where she had unsuccessfully contested.

Ilmi, a journalist who has been with AAP since its inception, had conveyed the party leadership her desire to contest from one of the seven seats in Delhi in the Lok Sabha elections.

The AAP leader is expected to address media tomorrow.

Ilmi, a popular minority face of the party, had also lost Delhi assembly elections from the R K Puram constituency.
