She added that there is nothing wrong in ending a 5-year-old relation in order to defeat BJP again. Lamba was, in all probability, hinted that she was ready to end her 5-year-old relation with the Aam Admi Party expressing her desire to join the Grand Old Party. Lamba had tweeted a couple of days ago that she was approached by the BJP to join the party.
हो सकता है कि मैं इन चुनावों में किसी एक दल और नेता के साथ खड़ी ना दिखूँ, पर देशहित में जो भी दल-नेता फैसला लेगा मैं उसके उस फैसले के साथ जरूर खड़ी दिखूंगी,
यह चुनाव देश का चुनाव है,देश से सीधे जुड़े मुद्दों का चुनाव है, युवाओं का , किसानों का , महिलाओं का, मजदूरों का चुनाव है। https://t.co/qXAdDc6hfp

She later tweeted that she might not be seen supporting any particular leader or party in the upcoming general elections but will stand by a decision which is in the interest of the country regardless of which party or leader has taken the decision.
Alka Lamba’s relation with her party has been stormy in recent weeks. She was even asked to resign from the assembly by Arvind Kejriwal in December last year over a resolution on Rajiv Gandhi’s Bharat Ratna. Although that episode was resolved and she didn’t resign, she became an outsider for the inner circle of the party. She was removed from the party’s WhatsApp group, and Kejriwal had unfollowed her on Twitter, clearly indicating that she is no longer wanted in the party.
