Amid rift with the party, AAP Lawmaker from Chandni Chowk Assembly Seat Alka Lamba said she will not participate and campaign for her party in the national elections, due for May 12 in the national capital. Claiming she has been sidelined by the party in last 4 months, Lamba said she will continue to serve the people of her constituency (Chandi Chowk) but will not participate in any type of campaigning in favour of the party.

‘From the past 4 months, I am seeking time to meet Leaders of the party but no one responded to my request, So I have decided not to campaign for the party’, said AAP MLA from Chandni Chowk.
