Even as Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal laguishes in Tihar jail, prominent party leader Shazia Ilmi resigns from the political group. 

Ending speculation on her tenure, she announced, "After much thought and deliberation I have decided to give up my membership of AAP and resign from all positions within the party.

Blaming the lack of internal party organisation, she said, "AAP did a lot to change national political discourse, but it lacked inner party democracy."

The journalist turned politician also added that she had no plans to join another political party. However, she said "If I'm given a relevant role, I am willing to return to the party"

"I feel the party is not moving in a good direction, I see no hope. I hope my departure makes them introspect," she added.
