Was Punjab’s internal politics too hot for Phoolka to handle?
Why did he realise that he should now focus on 1984 cases?
Was Phoolka disenchanted with AAP?
Wasn’t he unhappy that he was not consulted on matters related to Punjab?
There are many questions which beg for answers. Phoolka says that he will not focus 1984 anti-sikh riot case. Squabbling within the Punjab unit is getting murkier with every passing day.
AAP leader and senior advocate H S Phoolka today announced his resignation from all party posts, saying he wants to devote “undivided attention” to the anti-Sikh riots cases which are at a “crucial juncture”.
In a bid to scotch murmurs of a rift with the party leadership over his decision, Phoolka said that he would remain an “inherent” part of AAP, which he said is standing on the cusp of winning the next assembly polls in Punjab.
“After detailed discussions with (Arvind) Kejriwalji and with his approval, it has been decided collectively that I quit active politics and resign from party posts, to enable myself to entirely devote myself for getting justice for the victims…” Phoolka said
