MLA Alka Lamba expelled by Aam Aadmi Party from the position of “spokesperson”


NEW DELHI: MLA Alka Lamba has been suspended from the position of spokesperson by Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday for two months.

She was removed from the position of AAP spokesperson for giving the statement that Gopal Rai was "relieved" of the transport portfolio because the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB)'s investigation into corruption charges related to favouring an app-based premium bus service.

Lamba acted on her suspension and alleged that “I am a disciplined worker and will abide by the party's decision." If I have made a mistake unknowingly, I am ready to repent," Lamba tweeted on Thursday.

Gopal Rai was evacuated as transport minister on 14 June for citing the reason of health. The opposition party BJP and Congress called it as the fallout of the ACB's investigation.

"Some people are spreading rumour that I have resigned due to Premium Bus Scheme. There has been no corruption in this scheme and my resignation has no connection with it," the former transport minister tweeted.
