Famous musician Remo Fernandes who had joined the Aam Admi Party (AAP) in Goa announced here today that he is distancing himself from politics to return full time to music, though he has reposed his faith in AAP founder Arvind Kejriwal.

"Some of you are asking 'Where is Remo now that elections are round the corner?' And rightly so. But may I remind you that right from the start, I categorically stated I wasn't going to contest elections or aim at becoming a minister or an MP," Remo said in his Facebook post.

Along with social activist Oscar Rebello, the musician had joined AAP, soon after the party won the Delhi elections.

"However, even as a normal party worker, I gave 100 per cent of my time and mind space when I did get involved, because that is my nature. I cannot do things in half measures. I even gave away my premises in a prime location in Central Panjim rent-free as AAP offices, and I still do," the musician said.

"But the mind space required in politics is full of well, politics -- which is enough to kill the music in me forever. I must not strangle it (music) by entering politics. I have therefore returned full time to the first and greatest love of my life," he said.

However, the musician has reposed his faith in the philosophies, principles and actions of AAP founder Arvind Kejriwal.

"I believe he and his manifesto are the only ones aimed at stamping out corruption (the root cause of all of India's problems), and empowering the people of India," he said, referring to the former Delhi chief minister.

"I shall continue, as always, to use my music and my art to fight for what I believe is right," he said.
