Former Jharkhand Congress chief Ajoy Kumar on Thursday joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the presence of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. Only the AAP is truly a party of the 'aam aadmi' where anyone can join and work towards development, he said.

Kumar, a former IPS officer, resigned as Jharkhand Congress chief last month, accusing some colleagues of promoting their own interests over the party and indulging in corrupt practices.

Congress appointed Rameshwar Oraon as the president of the Jharkhand unit in August after Ajoy Kumar resigned from the post taking moral responsibility of the Congress's defeat in Jharkhand in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. He had also accused the local Congress leadership of corruption and keeping their personal interests above the party.

The resignation letter which the leader posted on Twitter on 10 August stated that many of his colleagues are even bad than the worst criminals. Kumar blamed former union ministers Subodh Kant Sahay, Rameshwar Oraon and few others for their 'leg-pulling' attitude reports, India Today
