Routed in the Lok Sabha elections, the AAP grappled with a new crisis Friday after it emerged that Shazia Ilmi, one of its most prominent faces, looked set to exit the party or at least go public with what party sources described as “reasons for her unhappiness”.
Ilmi declined any immediate comment, saying she would speak to the media on Saturday. “I will speak at the press conference tomorrow,” she said.
Earlier, she told Times Now: “Party has made several mistakes. Party needs to reinvent itself, and it needs to change its strategy.”

Ilmi unsuccessfully contested elections to both the Delhi Assembly and Lok Sabha.
AAP spokespersons said they would wait for Ilmi’s press conference on Saturday before offering comment. Party sources, however, acknowledged that there have been “several disagreements” with Ilmi recently.
On Friday, AAP volunteers, upset over the electoral reverses, disrupted a party meeting and called for dissolution of the party political affairs committee and national executive. Raising slogans, they demanded that the party take decisions only after consulting volunteers.
