Damania quits, says she did not join AAP for ‘horse trading’

Damania quits, says she did not join AAP for ‘horse trading’
She put down her papers, after former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg released an audio-tape of a conversation between him and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, claiming that the latter, before the dissolution of the Delhi Assembly in 2014, had indulged in the horse-trading of six Congress MLAs to form the government. This is the second time in 10 months that Damania quit the party.

Her resignation, after the similar move in June last year, was ostensibly prompted by reports of a sting operation that alleged that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tried to poach Congress legislators to form the government. “I quit. I have not come into AAP for this nonsense,” she said in a surprise tweet on Wednesday afternoon. She further said “I believed him. I backed Arvind for principles not horse-trading.” This was followed by a series of tweets, one of which, said: “AAP is not a political party. It is a ray of hope for this country. Thousands of volunteers slogged for it. Just no one can play with the siddhant (principles).”

Referring to Kejriwal and the fall-out between party leaders, Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, she tweeted: “AAP will only work on Siddhant. Just enough of nonsense. Arvind, Bhushan & Yadav should beg apology to the karyakarta in next 48 hrs for their acts;” followed by, “I demand inquiry in 48 hours into all these allegations. volunteers have given their sweat and blood. It is not for the party. It is for the country.”
