A day after alleging that she was heckled at the AAP’s National Council meeting, founder member Madhu Bhaduri on Sunday quit the party. “I did not have a choice. I was literally chased out of the meeting,” she said.
Since she didn’t hold a designated post in the party, Bhaduri is not required to tender her resignation.
A former diplomat, Bhaduri joined the AAP in 2012 after her retirement. “For some time now, I have been feeling a lack of social awareness in the party,” she said.

She said, “The Aam Aadmi Party has become the aam aadmi prejudice party. It is very convenient for them to shape their beliefs around the prejudices of voters.”
In the National Council meeting on Friday, Bhaduri tried to move a motion “to tender an apology to the women from Uganda and Nigeria living in Khirki Extension”. According to Bhaduri, she was forced to leave the podium as the audience started shouting.
Refuting the allegation that Bhaduri was heckled, party spokesperson Deepak Bajpai said she was given five minutes to put her point across at the meeting. After that, “those sitting in front did ask her to sit down. However, leaders on the dais… tried to argue with the crowd to let her speak, but they did not”.
Police said no case had been registered though both sides had filed complaints.
