New Delhi [India], Sept. 10 (ANI): Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan on Saturday wrote to party national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and resigned from all posts.

In his letter to Kejriwal, Khan said, "As a chairman of the Waqf Board, many scams and irregularities of the previous government were brought to light during my tenure. I have been working wholeheartedly to serve people of Delhi. But some people are not liking my honesty and dedication. False allegations are being leveled against me and my family and I have been tired of giving justifications regarding those."

"Therefore, I would like to get relieved of all responsibilities party has given me. I resign from all posts," he added.

Khan is involved in an alleged recruitment scam in the Waqf Board where the Anti-Corruption Branch has launched a 'preliminary inquiry' against him.

Khan has termed the move as "interference" in working of the body by Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.

The AAP MLA was earlier in July booked for allegedly threatening a woman with dire consequences. (ANI)
