NEW DELHI -- AAP leader and senior advocate H.S. Phoolka announced his resignation from all party posts, saying he wants to devote “undivided attention” to the anti-Sikh riots cases which are at a “crucial juncture” on Saturday.
In a bid to scotch murmurs of a rift with the party leadership over his decision, Phoolka said that he would remain an “inherent” part of AAP, which he said is standing on the cusp of winning the next assembly polls in Punjab.
“After detailed discussions with New Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwalji and with his approval, it has been decided collectively that I quit active politics and resign from party posts, to enable myself to entirely devote myself for getting justice for the victims...” Phoolka said.
