NEW DELHI- Arvind Kejriwal, a leader of India’s new emerging political party Aam Admi Party (AAP) and New Delhi Chief Minister, resigned today after enjoying the chair for just 49 days.
According to Indian media reports, Kejriwal tendered his resignation after his failed attempt to get an anti-corruption law called ‘Jan Lokpal’ Bill approved from the Delhi Assembly.
"We have not come here to save the government but the country. I will sacrifice the CM's chair a thousand times if I have to, for this task. We have to take this fight to Parliament. Perhaps it is our last session" he said.
Speaking to media, he demanded for a fresh election. He criticized the two main political parties for not allowing the bill to be tabled in the legislature.
