Journalist-turned-politician Ashutosh on Wednesday announced that he has resigned from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), citing a "very personal reason". "Every journey has an end. My association with AAP which was beautiful/revolutionary has also an end...Thanks to party/all of them who supported me throughout," the leader tweeted.
Ashutosh has also requested the media to respect his privacy, and said that he would not be giving any statement to any media person. He was an active component of Anna Hazare's mass movement against corruption and even wrote a book on the Jan Lokpal Movement. A successful TV journalist, Ashutosh joined Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party in January, 2014.
