New Delhi: Journalist-turned-politician Ashutosh on Wednesday announced his resignation from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He has cited personal reasons for his decision to quit the party.

"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," Ashutosh said in a tweet.

However, Kejriwal rejected his move, tweeting: "How can we ever accept your resignation? Not in this lifetime." Ashutosh's move came months after a rift within the party over Delhi's three Rajya Sabha seats.

Ashutosh had contested the last general election from Delhi's Chandni Chowk, however, he lost. He was once considered close to Kejriwal and sources say he wasn't happy on being sidelined lately.
