Finally, AAP’s Alka Lamba quits, a month after AAP spokesperson taunted her that they will accept her resignation on Twitter too

AAP MLA Alka Lamba had 'announced' her resignation several times in the past months. Speculations are rife that she might join Congress and AAP had already stated that she should resign soon rather than announcing.

AAP’s Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba has ‘resigned’ from the party, she announced it in a tweet.

AAP’s ‘disgruntled’ MLA from Chandni Chowk, who has been complaining since over a year that she is being shunned by party leadership, has again said that it is time for her to leave the party. She had said the same thing last month too.

Last month too, Alka Lamba had said that she is soon going to resign from the primary membership of the Aam Aadmi Party and will submit her resignation in writing ‘soon’. It seems the ‘soon’ has not come yet.

Lamba had, however, specified that she will not resign as an MLA.

“I thought I should talk to people and make 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 last month too. She had added that she is considering contesting the Delhi assembly elections as an independent candidate.

On Tuesday, Alka Lamba had met Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi at her residence. Lamba has been in Congress earlier and it has been speculated often that she is hoping for an offer to join Congress again. She was associated with Congress till 2014 and had then joined AAP just before the 2015 assembly elections.

It is notable here that senior leaders in AAP were ready to accept her resignation but she was yet to resign despite announcing it several times. AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj had stated that Lamba has ‘announced’ her impending resignation over a dozen times but is yet to actually resign. He had added that the party will accept her resignation even on Twitter.

Even in May, she had tweeted, “My journey that started with you in 2013 will come to an end in 2020. My best wishes will be there with the dedicated ground workers, hopefully, you will remain a strong alternative in Delhi. The last six years have been very memorable and I have learnt a lot from you,”

It read like a resignation tweet but even after 3 months, Lamba was yet to resign.

In April this year, AAP’s Greater Kailash MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj had even dared Lamba to leave the party. Lamba had then addressed a crowd near Jama Masjid and had declared that the AAP leadership was trying to ‘weaken’ her. But she did not resign.

The Delhi assembly will finish its 5-year term in February 2020.

The latest update is that Alka Lamba has tweeted that she is resigning from AAP, finally.
