The BJP had attacked him and the Aam Aadmi party after a video went viral showing him attending the October 5 event where hundreds of people pledged to convert to Buddhism and not consider Hindu deities as gods.

Delhi Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam resigned from his post on Sunday, amid controversy over his attendance at a religious conversion event where Hindu deities were allegedly denounced.

The BJP had attacked him and the Aam Aadmi party after a video went viral showing him attending the October 5 event where hundreds of people pledged to convert to Buddhism and not consider Hindu deities as gods.

He accused the BJP of spreading “rumors” against him and apologized to “anyone who has been harmed by such propaganda”. In a letter shared on Twitter, he said he had quit.

“I don’t want my leader Shri Arvind Kejriwal or the party to get in trouble because of me. I am a true party soldier and I will follow the ideals shown by Baba Saheb Ambedkar and Gautam Buddh throughout my life.” he said.
