Adi Sivia Qoro
Interim PDP president
“I’ve personally spoken with him. What he discussed with me over the phone – it was for personal reasons. Apparently he had discussions with his family and it also had to do with his business.
“When people come into politics, they have to make a lot of sacrifices and I believe I speak on behalf of the whole party – we respect the decision he has made and given the reasons he had given to me – as one of the founders of the party, he worked hard to brand the party, and for that we are most grateful.”
Adi Sivia said that when things stabilise for Mr Singh, the door is always open.
“I did tell him that, that he is always welcome back when things stabilise for him.”
She added that Mr Singh’s resignation is not a setback for PDP.
“In fact he told me that his support for the party remains. He is there with the party all the way through.”

Sat Narayan
PDP interim secretary
“That’s his decision and we respect that decision – that’s what democracy is all about. That’s Nirmal’s freedom of choice and expression.
“He has left on a good note, so I don’t think he will take any PDP supporters with him.”
He said people are free to choose their political party so we respect his choice.

Krishna Datt
PDP founder
“When did he resign? I haven’t seen it. I will have to be cautious and look at that statement first, discuss it with him, discuss with Adi Sivia and others and then I can make a statement.
“It’s Sunday and I don’t have access to the internet so I have not seen the statement.”

Aman Ravindra-Singh
PDP founder
“I wish him all the best in all his endeavours for the future. Any member of your family when they leave is always a sad occasion.”
“I respect Nirmal’s decision and wish him well.”
