Delhi AAP Minister Resigns. Find out why

  • What: Delhi Social Welfare Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam today evening.

  • Why: This move comes after following vigorous protests by the BJP over his presence at a religious conversion event in Delhi.

  • Statement: He said: "I am a deeply religious person. I personally respect all the Gods and the Goddesses and would not even dream of insulting any deity through any action or word of mine." He added that accused the BJP of spreading "rumours" against him and apologised to "anyone who has been hurt due to such propaganda".

  • BJP's response: Following the incident, the BJP had launched an attack on Mr Kejriwal, asking him to sack Mr Gautam. They also put up posters against him that were later removed by his supporters ahead of a rally in Gujarat's Vadodara yesterday.
