Disgruntled AAP MLA Alka Lamba says she will go back to Congress if they offer


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

AAP MLA Alka Lamba has said she is willing to go back to Congress.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Alka Lamba, who is not on the best terms with her party and its chief Arvind Kejriwal, said she will be honoured to go back to the Congress, if such a proposal comes her way.

Speaking to ANI, Alka Lamba said, “I don’t have any such proposal (of joining Congress) from Congress yet, but it will be a matter of respect for me if any such proposal comes. I had given 20 years to the party. Congress will decide on the matter. An uninvited guest isn’t welcomed anywhere.”

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

Last month Alka Lamba alleged that the party leadership was “weakening” her and said she is being accused of attempting to switch over to the Congress.

She claimed that Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal will hold a public meeting near Jama Masjid in her constituency on February 20 but she has not been informed of it.

In December, Lamba said in a tweet that AAP had asked her to support the resolution, which she refused. Lamba then added that now she is ready to face any punishment because of her actions.

However, she refuted the rumours that she was quitting AAP over the disagreement and the party also clarified that they have not asked her to resign.

Alka Lamba won the Chandni Chowk assembly seat in the 2013 Delhi elections. Before joining Kejriwal, Lamba was part of the Congress women’s wing.
