Addressing the press, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that Delhi legislator Amanatullah Khan, who has already resigned from Political Affairs Committee (PAC), has now been suspended from the party.

The chief minister Arvind Kejriwal along with Sisodia had visited Vishwas's Ghaziabad residence on 2 May to pacify him.
