AAP fires their Delhi Dialogue Commission's secretary Ashish Joshi for chewing gutka

New Delhi, May 9 (PTI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government today refuted the charges levelled by former Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC) member-secretary and IP&TAFS officer Ashish Joshi, and alleged that the officer has been running a “systematic vilification campaign” against it. [1]

The government also alleged that Joshi has been “harassing” its officials since he was relieved from his additional duty and has been making “unsuccessful attempts” to contact its officers through e-mail and on telephone.

"It is a pity that after a month’s research, all they could come up with is that I consume gutka. I am not aware of this purported letter. If it is true, you can see that it is a classic case of a witch hunt.” [2]

Joshi called AAP as "bloodsuckers" in an interview with ANI "I only smoke cigar, but what about those who suck blood of others." [3]
