After Navjot Singh Sidhu, cricketer Kirti Azad’s wife is likely to join the Aam Admi Party. Azad retweeted a news report of his wife Poonam Azad joining the AAP from his twitter medium. Poonam Azad will resign “soon” and join AAP, sources close to her said. She is currently a Delhi BJP Spokesperson and was previously its vice president.
Her decision is also driven by the suspension of Kirti Azad, who had launched a bitter attack on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over alleged corruption in DDCA during the latter’s tenure as its head and continued with his tirade despite party chief Amit Shah’s intervention. Both husband and wife are unsure about their future in BJP.
This news comes after cricketer- turned – politician Sidhu resigned from Rajya Sabha yesterday.
