Advisor to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal resigns

V.K Jain, the advisor to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, has resigned citing personal reasons and family commitments, days after he was questioned by police in connection with the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, sources said.

“Jain has resigned from the post of advisor to the Delhi chief minister citing personal reasons and family commitment,” one of the sources told.

He has submitted his resignation letter in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) and sent a copy to the lieutenant governor, the source added.

He was appointed to the post in September last year, days after he had retired as the CEO of the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB). The board is chaired by Kejriwal.

Jain had not been coming to the CMO since the incident and had gone on a week-long medical leave, the sources said.

Anshu Prakash was allegedly assaulted by AAP MLAs during a meeting at the chief minister’s residence in the evening of February 19.
