Days after admitting that quitting as Delhi Chief Minister was a mistake, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the decision to resign was a “collective” one and was taken only after consultation with the party’s Political Affairs Committee (PAC).
“I admit that we suddenly resigned…In Vidhan Sabha everyone saw them (BJP and Congress) disrupting the proceedings and we resigned immediately. But no one expected us to resign and this came as a shock to the people”, Kejriwal said.
“The decision of resigning was right because we resigned on principles. If we had gone to the people consulting them for 3-4 days, asked or convinced them then people would have understood. Communication gap was a mistake. We should have talked to the people and this is the mistake we did,” Kejriwal said during a ‘Google Hangout’ conducted by Network 18.

He said that the decision to quit was a collective one and taken at the PAC meeting.
He admitted that after a gap of one and half month since his resignation, people have now changed their mind and have started supporting the party.
Kejriwal also clarified that he did not take gangster turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari’s support in his fight against Narendra Modi in Varanasi. The Mhow strongman has withdrawn from the electoral race in Varanasi to avoid “division” of secular votes.
“We have not taken support of Mukhtar Ansari, nor did we have any meeting with him. He has also not given us any support.
“He has just said that he is not contesting the election. That is entirely upto him. So, there is no question of taking (his) support. We are not going to have any communication with Ansari.
