Delhi Congress President Ajay Maken on Tuesday broke down during the recording of a programme on a news channel when asked about former Delhi minister Arvinder Singh Lovely quitting the party to join the BJP.
The former Union minister was responding to the question during an interview on ABP news channel, as to why senior leaders like Sheila Dikshit had not so far participated in the municipal polls campaign and why some leaders, considered party loyalists, were deserting the party and joining BJP.
"It is quite natural that questions would be raised on my leadership.
Asked if Lovely joining BJP was a big setback for him, tears welled up in Maken's eyes and he could not speak for some time.
"Yes, it is definitely," he said.
