The party came a distant second, winning only 48 out of 272 wards.

"I have resigned from d post of AAP Delhi Convenor, conveyed to National Convenor @ArvindKejriwal to give this responsibility to someone else (sic)," Pandey tweeted.

Pandey, a crucial cog in the party's machinery, was overseeing MCD campaign and strategy along with AAP's Delhi in-charge Ashish Talwar.


Two days before the poll results, Pandey had expressed apprehension that the MCD poll results could be "rigged" and the ground for it was being prepared by "floating" exit polls predicting a BJP sweep.
