The Aam Aadmi Party failed to bag a single Lok Sabha seat out of the 10 in the state.

Naveen Jaihind, another leader and prominent face of the AAP in Haryana, also resigned from the membership of the national executive committee.

Party spokesperson and Delhi unit secretary Dilip Pandey clarified that the duo had resigned as members of the PAC and NE and not from the party.
Pankaj Gupta, party's national secretary has said that the issue will be on the agenda of National Executive whenever it meets.
"@AapYogendra & .@naveenjaihind are still with @AamAadmiParty... and resignation given from PAC & NE resp. to be discussed in NE meeting," Pandey tweeted.
Party sources said that both offered to resign after the clashes between the two came to the fore and Jaihind was also served a notice. Yadav is party's Haryana in charge while Jaihind is the state convenor. The psephologist-turned- politician and Jaihind unsucessfully contested from Gurgaon and Rohtak respectively.
Yadav has also clarified that he has not quit from the party and the rumours are baseless.
"Rumours about my quitting AAP are baseless. I am very much with the party and committed to working for it harder than ever," he tweeted.
However, when asked why he quit as the PAC member, he declined to comment on the isssue.

According to the sources, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal has refused to accept their resignations.  Party leaders said that they would try to convince the two leaders to think again on their decisions.

AAP faced a twin blow last week after senior party leaders Shazia Ilmi and Captain GR Gopinath resigned from all the positions in the party, alleging that the party lacks internal democracy.

“My response to Shazia Ilmi's resignation. She is right, we should introspect. Wish she was with us in this process,” Yadav had tweeted.

There have been several rumours suggesting the lack of democracy in the party with many also accusing Kejriwal and his trusted group of leaders of behaving in an anarchical manner.

After a stunning poll debut in the Delhi Assembly election last year, AAP’s political stature in the country have dwindled down to a great extent with the party managing to win just four seats in the recently concluded Lok Sabha election.

All the four seats, that AAP won, came from Punjab where the party put up a strong performance. However, the party failed to win even a single seat from Delhi in the general elections.
