Resignation letter

Alleging gross abuse of trust, Rama tendered his resignation to Goa AAP convener Elvis Golmes asserting that he has been dismayed and disgruntled with the apathy and lack of accountability displayed by the AAP party in settling the St. Andres constituency election bills. In the resignation letter, Rama mentions that despite follow-ups with more than 25 meetings with AAP leaders, action on his requests was not taken. Rama also claims that there has neither been any communication from AAP’s National leadership, nor the Goa AAP convener has responded to Rama’s requests. In addition to this, he has also alleged that the Delhi AAP officials had damaged his personal vehicle in 2017 and the compensation for the same hadn’t been paid yet.

Rama has also attached the details of the follow-ups he has been taking up to get his dues cleared. Rama has claimed that he is not the only candidate to be the victim of party’s apathy and that there are others too who have been totally shunned by the party. Attacking the AAP leadership, Rama contended that since AAP is treacherous to its own members and followers, they can not be trusted with public resources as well. The disgruntled former AAP member also slammed AAP for his agony and causing him personal injury and asked it to practice what it preaches.
