Khetan tweeted and gave this information. He wrote that he is resigning to practice advocacy.

He tweeted, “I have resigned as VC, DDC, with effect from April 16. During the past three years I had a unique opportunity to shape public policy & bring about reform and change in governance. I am grateful to Arvind Kejriwal, the Hon’ble CM, for giving me this wonderful opportunity.”

“I am joining the legal profession and enrolling with the Bar at Delhi, which actually necessitated my resignation from the DDC. Bar Council Rules prohibit practicing advocates from any kind of private or government employment,” he added.

Khetan added, “Political engagement, writing and law are all inextricably intertwined. I have spent the last 15 years at the intersection of the three. In my new profession, besides doing the routine cases I will also take up legal causes in the larger public interest.”

Ashish Khetan was made advisor to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Ashish Khaitan is associated with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) since 2014.
