Congress denies reports of Maken resigning as Delhi Chief

The Congress on Tuesday denied reports that Delhi Congress committee chief Ajay Maken has resigned.

The party said in a statement that he has some health issues and has gone for a check-up and will be back soon.

Party incharge of Delhi affairs PC Chacko said, “Maken has some health problem and he has gone for a check-up. He will be back next week.”

Chacko further said, once Maken is back in India, they will like to design a working -arrangement so that the Congress leader can continue to be the Delhi party president.

Maken, who replaced Arvinder Singh Lovely as Delhi Congress chief three years ago, had resigned earlier when the party did not perform well in civic polls.

However, the party leadership had asked him to stay in his post.

Maken is currently in abroad for treatment. He has been a two-times MP and three times MLA. Maken was a union minister when the Congress was in power at the centre
