"She also said the party has lost its direction and needs to introspect and go beyond agitations."
New Delhi, May 24 - AAP leader Shazia Ilmi Saturday quit the party citing lack of democracy within it.
There is lack of inner party democracy within the Aam Aadmi Party. The party which talks about 'Swaraj' has failed to apply it within the party, Ilmi said at a press conference here.
Accusing the party of marginalising her, Ilmi said: We fight against cronyism but there is a crony clique that runs AAP, who takes the decisions and we are told about it later.
She also clarified that her resignation from the party is not due to the fact that she was asked to contest the Lok Sabha election from Ghaziabad, from where she lost.
She also said the party has lost its direction and needs to introspect and go beyond agitations.
I am not for jail bharo politics. There is a need to reinvent the AAP, go beyond agitation, Ilmi said while taking a potshot at AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, who is in judicial custody for refusing to pay bail amount in a defamation case.
