Ajay Maken resigns from Delhi Congress chief post
New Delhi : Political leader Ajay Maken on Tuesday resigned from his Delhi Congress chief post; he had been leading the party in Delhi since 2015.
According to information, Mr Maken wrote a letter to Congress President Rahul Gandhi and mentioned that he is unwell. However, the party has denied reports and said there is 'no truth'.
Mr Maken, who replaced Arvinder Singh Lovely as Delhi Congress chief three years ago, had resigned earlier when the party did not perform well in civic polls. But the party leadership had asked him to continue.
A two-time parliamentarian and three-time legislator, Mr Maken was a union minister when the Congress was in power at the centre.
