Earlier in the day, he denied rumours of him offering to resign from his post and said neither has he offered to step down nor has he been asked to resign from the post in the wake of the party’s poor performance in the assembly elections in the national capital.
The rumour started spreading after Tiwari contacted a top party functionary earlier in the day. “Neither have I been asked to resign nor have I offered my resignation,” Tiwari said.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, after the announcement of Delhi Assembly election results, Tiwari had said whether he continues as Delhi BJP chief or steps down is an internal matter of the party.
Appointed as Delhi BJP president in November 2016, Tiwari has already completed his three-year tenure. However, the organisational elections of the party which was due last year were postponed because of the assembly elections.
