The Haryana unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has welcomed Arvind Kejriwal's resignation as the Delhi chief minister and termed the decision as a morale booster for the party.
DR Chaudhry, a former Delhi University professor and AAP member, said, "The decision is a master stroke that served several purposes."
He said AAP had exposed the nexus between politicians, bureaucrats and big businesses. "Besides, we have once again proved that the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are the two sides of the same coin, who came together to save the interests of Mukesh Ambani," he added.
So far, AAP has announced to field candidates from all the 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana. Its senior member Yogender Yadav has applied to contest from the Gurgaon Lok Sabha seat.
An expert said that the resignation could be a blessing in disguise, as Kejriwal could now devote time for the Lok Sabha elections.
AAP national executive member Navin Jaihind, who hails from Rohtak, said: "We have been successful in exposing established parties, who voted against the anti-corruption bill in Delhi assembly."
