The decision was taken following a petition by AAP legislator Saurabh Bharadwaj after Lamba joined the Congress earlier this month. He sought her disqualification on grounds of defection.
The Speaker said Lamba, an elected member of the Delhi Assembly from Chandni Chowk, had been disqualified. “Consequently, the Chandni Chowk Assembly constituency has fallen vacant,” the order said.
Earlier four more MLAs were disqualified on similar grounds.
