New Delhi: In a surprising move, Ajay Maken resigned as chief of the Congress in Delhi.
Reports suggest that Congress president Rahul Gandhi has accepted his resignation. Maken on Friday took it to twitter to announce his resignation and he further thanked Rahul Gandhi.
Maken met Rahul Gandhi last night before announcing his resignation in a tweet. “After the 2015 assembly election, in the past four years as Delhi Congress resident, I received immense love and support from Rahul Gandhi, workers and the media. It was not easy in these difficult circumstances. I am grateful,” he tweeted in Hindi.
2015 विधान सभा के उपरान्त-
बतौर @INCDelhi अध्यक्ष-पिछले 4 वर्षों से,दिल्ली कांग्रेस कार्यकर्ताओं द्वारा,कांग्रेस कवर करने वाली मीडिया द्वारा,एवं हमारे नेता @RahulGandhi जी द्वारा,मुझे अपार स्नेह तथा सहयोग मिला है।
इन कठिन परिस्थितियों में यह आसान नहीं था! इसके लिए ह्रदय से आभार!

He took over as Delhi Congress president in 2015 after the party lost the assembly polls in the national capital after three terms in power.
It is believed he has given health reasons for resigning. But if reports are to be believed, there is a possibility of Ajay Maken being given a new central role or even contesting the Lok Sabha election.
