Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) star legislator from Delhi, Alka Lamba on Thursday announced that she would not campaign for the party in the Lok Sabha election. The souring ties of her with the party is said to be the reason.
Claiming that she has not been invited to any MLA meetings by the party in the last four months, Ms. Lamba said she would serve the people of her constituency, but would not be participating in any kind of campaigning for AAP.
The legislator from Delhi's Chandni Chowk also accused party colleague and AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj of trying to create a rift between her and the party. Earlier this month, Ms. Lamba engaged in a bitter Twitter war with AAP’s Greater Kailash MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj, who had taunted her to resign from the party.
"Saurabh Bhardwaj has been repeatedly levelling accusations that I am joining the Congress party, (he has) fuelled the rumours in party and media that I am contesting Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket," she was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
