New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba quits the party, according to the reports. Earlier, the party has sought the resignation of Alka Lamba over a resolution in the Assembly that demanded withdrawal of Bhathe rat Ratna award conferred on former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.
“The Party has asked for my resignation. I’m ready to resign but Rajiv Gandhi has sacrificed a lot for the country and I didn’t support the proposal in Assembly of taking back his Bharat Ratna. I’ve been asked to resign because I stood against the decision of the party,” Lamba was quoted as saying.

The party’s reaction came after Lamba on Sunday claimed that AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had unfollowed her on Twitter.
She also expressed her displeasure to the AAP leadership, asking them to clear their stance on her position in the party.
Reacting, AAP spokesman Saurabh Bhardwaj told IANS that the party has no intention to remove her. “She wants to leave the party and is finding reasons for the same.
“The party has no intention to remove her. It is very easy for a party to suspend people. We even took back people after suspension when we found that they have changed.
“You have to follow certain disciplines and decorum in the party or for that matter in any organisation,” he added.
