Founding member of AAP quits

Former diplomat and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) founding member Madhu Bhaduri on Sunday “distanced” herself from the party alleging that she was heckled at a meeting for introducing a resolution condemning Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti’s role in a midnight raid, even as the outfit rubbished the charges.

“I have distanced myself from the party. I am not with the party anymore,” Bhaduri said in a response to a question whether she has quit AAP.

“There is no question of quitting because I don’t hold any post in the party. I am neither a national executive member nor a political affairs committee member,” she added.

Bhaduri, a member of the party panel to chalk out its foreign policy, had alleged that she was heckled at Friday’s National Council meeting here when she tried to pass a resolution condemning Bharti’s midnight raid in the Khirki extension.

“I had given a formal request on January 23 for a resolution. Navy Chief Admiral (retd) Ramdas was also aware of it. When the session was going on, I again went to Ramdas, who was speaking  and told him that I also wanted to speak. I had hardly started and introduced a resolution when I was heckled,” Bhaduri claimed.
