Bhubaneswar, Apr 5:
Activist and petitioner in the Odisha chit fund scam case in the apex court Alok Jena, who had joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in January this year, has resigned from its primary membership, a release said today.
Jena, in his letter to the president/national convener of the AAP said he had joined the party not to seek a ticket to contest in the election but because he was inspired by certain front ranking leaders of the party.
“I did not even apply for an AAP ticket,” he said.
Citing the reason for his disillusionment Jena said in his resignation letter,”Being a social and RTI activist I expected at least moral support from AAP to fight for common man’s cause to get justice.But practically, particularly in Odisha, the AAP is not on the path of common man’s cause.”
