One of Aam Aadmi Party’s most prominent faces and Maharashtra convener Anjali Damania on Wednesday quit the party in view of horse-trading allegations.

Announcing her decision on social media platform Twitter, Damania mentioned, “I quit, I have not come into AAP for this nonsense. I believed him, I backed Arvind for principles not Horse-trading.”

The incident came into spotlight after an audiotape, dating back to 2014, was released by former MLA Rajesh Garg on Wednesday.

In the audio, former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg can be heard discussing the horse-trading of six Congress MLAs with then Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

After releasing the video, Garg accused Kejriwal of wanting to form government in Delhi by breaking Congress MLAs in order to attain full majority in House. 

He even claimed that Manish Sisodia was in regular touch with Congress MLAs to form government in 2014.

After the disclosure, Anjali Damania announced that she is not in AAP for this nonsense and quit from party.

Few days back, Damania had also accused Prashant Bhushan of wanting the party to lose the recently concluded Delhi Assembly elections. She also accused Bhushan of discouraging the donors from making donations to the party ahead of elections.
