Damania quits AAP amid allegations of horse-trading against Kejriwal

Damania quits AAP amid allegations of horse-trading against Kejriwal
Damania, known to be close to Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal, lashed out at the party leadership saying she had backed the AAP chief for "principles" and not "horse-trading".

"I quit...I have not come into AAP for this nonsense. I believed him...I backed Arvind for principles not horse-trading," she tweeted.

A senior leader from Maharashtra, Damania had unsuccessfully contested from Nagpur constituency against Union Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nitin Gadkari whom she had accused of corruption.

The resignation of Damania comes at a time when the AAP is battling internal strife after two senior leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav criticised Kejriwal openly for his working style.

Former AAP MLA from Rohini, Rajesh Garg alleged that Kejriwal had spoken about breaking the Congress and forming the government with the support of their MLAs in Delhi last year. Garg also circulated an audio clip of a purported telephonic conversation of Kejriwal to back his allegations.

Demanding an inquiry into the matter in the next 48 hours, Damania said Kejriwal, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan should apologise to the volunteers.

"I demand an inquiry in 48 hrs into all these allegations. Volunteers have given their sweat & blood. It is not for the party...It is for the country. AAP will only work on siddhant (principles). Just enough of nonsense. Arvind, PB & YY should apologise to the karyakarta in next 48 hrs for their acts

"AAP is not a political party. It was a ray of hope for this country. Thousands of vols slogged for it. Just no one can play with the siddhant," she tweeted.
