“I confirm that I have asked (Arvind) Kejriwal to remove me from the posts of the party’s chief whip in the Assembly and party spokesperson with immediate effect,” he told reporters. The former Congressman has also requested the Delhi chief minister to give these posts to leaders in the party who were “more deserving” than him.

“I am very happy to serve the party as an ordinary volunteer and elected representative of the people,” said the Bholath MLA.

Sources in the AAP said Mr Khaira was unhappy over not getting any post after the rejig of the party’s Punjab unit. The Political Affairs Committee of the AAP Monday met in New Delhi to decide on a revamp of the party’s Punjab unit. Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann was appointed as AAP’s Punjab convenor at the meeting.
