Kejriwal says not in this life as Ashutosh quits AAP

Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday rejected party leader Ashutosh’s resignation, asking how could they accept it.
“How can we ever accept ur resignation?,” Kejriwal said in a tweet, adding dramatically, “No, not in this birth” in Hindi.
Ashutosh, a former TV journalist who uses just his first name, had earlier on Wednesday announced his resignation from the party, citing personal reasons.
Ashutosh often defended the party in TV news debates, but felt sidelined in recent months, sources said.
He was not in AAP’s list of three candidates for a Rajya Sabha seat earlier this year.
He has not visited AAP Delhi’s office and kept away from important party activities for the last few months, sources said.
He lost the 2014 Lok Sabha election in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk constituency to union environment minister Harsh Vardhan. Watch video for more details.
