MLA from Chandni Chowk, Alka Lamba says goodbye to AAP, to resign from party after 6 years

Date:

Days after Alka Lamba tweeted a picture from her meeting with Sonia Gandhi, the disgruntled Aam Aadmi Party leader on Friday bade goodbye to the AAP.

Terming the six-year journey with AAP as great learning, Alka Lamba tweeted, “The time has come to say “Good Bye” to AAP and to resign from the primary membership of the Party. The past 6 years journey was a great learning for me. Thanks to all.”

Alka Lamba’s decision to leave AAP comes ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections scheduled to be held early next year. The disgruntled AAP MLA had earlier met Congress president Sonia Gandhi, which had fuelled speculations of her joining the grand old party.

Alka Lamba, however, then said she met Sonia Gandhi to discuss issues, including the current political situation of the country.

The AAP MLA from Chandni Chowk had last month announced that she has made up her mind about leaving the party and contest the upcoming Assembly election as an Independent.

Alka Lamba and AAP

Alka Lamba has been at odds with the Aam Aadmi Party for some time now. After the party’s defeat in Lok Sabha elections, she had sought accountability from its national convener Arvind Kejriwal. She was then removed from the official WhatsApp group of the party lawmakers.

She had also refused to campaign for the party in the Lok Sabha polls and refrained from participating in Kejriwal’s roadshow after she was asked to walk behind his car during the event.

Alka Lamba had first hit a rough patch with the AAP over its decision to pass a resolution to revoke Rajiv Gandhi’s Bharat Ratna. Alka Lamba had raised objections to the party’s resolution.
