New Delhi: In a major delvelopment, Dilip Pandey on Wednesday resigned from the post of AAP Delhi Convenor after his party faced severe defeat in MCD elections.

Taking to Twitter, Dilip Pandey wrote, "I have resigned frm d post of AAP Delhi Convenor, conveyed to National Convenor @ArvindKejriwal to give this responsibility to someone else."

The AAP was handed a severe drubbing in the Delhi MCD polls by the BJP, triggering charges of "EVM manipulation" from the Arvind Kejriwal-led party amid murmurs of dissent within its ranks.

The AAP's humiliating defeat plunged it into a crisis even as its top leadership put up a brave front suggesting it was all expected due to tampering with EVMs, an allegation that has been rubbished by the Election Commission.
