Disgruntled AAP leader Alka Lamba to resign from primary membership of the party, will continue as Chandni Chowk MLA

Alka Lamba said she will tender her resignation from the primary membership of AAP soon in writing

Alka Lamba, the Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Chandni Chowk, announced on Sunday that she will resign from the Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party. However, she said she will continue to be a member of the Delhi Legislative Assembly, reports ANI. She informed that she will submmit her written resignation from primary membership of the party soon.

“I thought I should talk to people and take a decision. It has been decided that I should break all ties with Aam Aadmi Party and resign from its primary membership. I’ll tender my resignation from the primary membership of AAP, soon in writing. I will continue to be an MLA,” said Alka Lamba.

On August 1, disgruntled AAP MLA Alka Lamba had hinted at leaving the party after she had said that she made up her mind to quit the party and is mulling contesting the upcoming Delhi assembly elections as an independent candidate.

“I am not called to meetings. I am insulted repeatedly. I spent 20 years in the Congress and even there I struggled with family politics but in the AAP I do not get the basic respect,” she had claimed.

Last week, Alka Lamba had made a stunning claim that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been taking revenge against her by hampering the CCTV installation work being carried out by her in the constituency. In a series of tweets, Chandni Chowk MLA Lamba had accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of interfering the developmental activities of the work as revenge for speaking out against him in the past.

The rift between Alka Lamba and Aam Aadmi Party began after Alka Lamba had expressed her displeasure with the AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal. A few months back, Lamba had bemoaned that the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had unfollowed her on Twitter and that she was unceremoniously removed from the official Whatsapp group.

Recently, Alka Lamba had lamented on Twitter accusing Arvind Kejriwal and his party of deliberately ignoring her. Lamba had conveyed her disappointment for not being invited for the laying of the foundation stone for one of the projects in her constituency of Chandni Chowk in Delhi.

Before that, in December last year, MLA Alka Lamba was reportedly asked to resign from the Aam Aadmi Party over a resolution that was presented in the Delhi Assembly on December 21. Alka Lamba had said that she had protested against an alleged proposal to revoke Bharat Ratna awarded to former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Alka Lamba had started her political career with the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of the Congress party, and was elected as the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) president. Subsequently she had joined the Congress party. She was included in the AICC and appointed as General Secretary of Delhi Congress in 2006. In 2014 she had left the Congress party to join the Aam Aadmi Party.
