Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh’s resignation from the party on a "very very personal reason" has been rejected, very firmly, by party chief Arvind Kejriwal.

"How can we ever accept your resignation? Not in this lifetime," Mr Kejriwal tweeted, pre-empting the discussion promised by party colleague Gopal Rai. A second tweet said, "Sir, we all love you very much".

Ashutosh, who left journalism to join AAP in 2014, announced his resignation in a tweet."Every journey has an end. My association with AAP which was beautiful/revolutionary has also an end.I have resigned from the PARTY/requested PAC to accept the same. It is purely from a very very personal reason.Thanks to party/all of them who supported me Throughout.Thanks."

A second tweet read: "To media friends. Please respect my privacy. I won’t be giving any bite of any kind. Please cooperate."

Sources close to Ashutosh said that it was not a sudden decision. "It was a long-thought decision," a source said. The leader had taken a sabbatical for the past three months as he was abroad. He had told the party that he needed some time off to write a book, sources said. The 53-year-old is the author of two books.
