By on November 9, 2013



SavitaGuptEx-mayor Savita Gupta, councillor from Amar Colony, resigned from the BJP on Friday and joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). She is angry due to denial of ticket from Kasturba Nagar. BJP gave ticket to Shikha Rai from Kastruba Nagar.

“Party brass has favoured its own candidates over deserving ones. I did not resign because I did not get a ticket but because I was upset with the way tickets were distributed. They have simply been given to senior leaders’ close aides. So I have now joined the AAP. ,Gupta said.

“She had come to our party headquarters and expressed her desire to join AAP. We have always said that anyone is welcome to join our party but there is a process and criteria for that, which they need to fulfill,” AAP spokesperson Manish Sisodiya told reporters.
