MUMBAI: When IBN7’s former managing editor and one of India’s most well known faces of Indian journalism, Ashutosh resigned a few days ago, speculations about him joining the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were rife.
After dillydallying a bit with the fellow media people for some time, the veteran journalist confirmed it in the morning with a tweet that he will be formally joining AAP today at 3 pm. The tweet has also been retweeted by AAP’s official handle. “Good morning. Need your blessings. Today I am formally joining AAP at 3 PM,” says the tweet.
A formal announcement is probably going to come from Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh who are addressing a press conference around the same time in the capital.
A string of tweets from Ashutosh Ashtosh shows his inclination towards the new step that he has taken to serve the nation.
Here’s what he has tweeted:
Tweet 1: ‘There will be enough time to make careers but such times come rarely in history when one gets an opportunity to help make a better nation.’
Tweet 2: ‘I did not like politics, the politics of big cars, of five star hotels, of money and muscle power. Common man had no role in that politics.’
Tweet 3: ‘Today politics is changing. This is the time to empower and support that energy which is agent of change and which will cleanse the system.’
