Hari Nagar MLA Jagdeep Singh withdraws resignation, to stay with AAP

Topics AAP | Congress | BJP

Days after quitting the AAP over being denied ticket for Delhi Assembly elections, incumbent Hari Nagar legislator Jagdeep Singh said on Friday that he has withdrawn his resignation on the advice of party national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

"I thought it was better to stay with the party. The AAP leadership and the chief minister advised me to stay with the party. So, I thought we have done good work in the past few years so I should continue with the party," he told PTI over phone.

Singh had quit the AAP last week expressing his displeasure over being denied ticket and the party giving nomination to Rajkumari Dhillon, who crossed over from the Congress recently.
