New Delhi: Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken on Wednesday resigned from his post following the grand old party’s poor show in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections.

Speaking to reporters after the results of the MCD polls were out, Maken said Congress had made a ‘reasonable comeback’ by winning in wards which it had lost in the previous election. However, he said he took responsibility for the Congress’ 3rd place finish in the polls and had decided to resign.

 

Maken added that he would not take up any post in Congress for one year, and instead work for the party.

Maken, like Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal, also called for a probe into EVM ‘tampering’. “Even if we cannot trust EVMs, we must trust Election Commission,” the senior Congress leader said.
