UTTARAKHAND: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’s chief ministerial face in the recent Uttarakhand Assembly polls, Colonel Ajay Kothiyal (retired) joined the BJP at its state party headquarters in Dehradun in the presence of CM Pushkar Singh Dhami. He had quit the AAP six days ago.
Joining the BJP along with many state AAP members including its ex-working president Bhupesh Upadhyay, Kothiyal told a press conference that his move to join the AAP was a “wrong emotional decision”, which he has rectified, he said, by joining the saffron party.
He said – “When I was with the AAP or when I worked for the renovation of Kedarnath Dham, I was never in front of so many cameras. I am a little hesitant, but I can say that there is peace in my heart. We are all human and sometimes we make a decision emotionally. Sometimes those decisions are right, but sometimes they turn out to be wrong. If we realise mid-course that we have made a wrong decision, we should make a correction and that is the wise thing to do,”
