Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel disqualified the rebel Aam Aadmi Party MLA Alka Lamba on the grounds of defection today. Alka had left her party and joined Congress on September 6.

AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj had, therefore, moved a petition seeking her disqualification on the defection ground. Owing to her removal now, Chandni Chowk assembly seat has fallen vacant.

The order issued by Delhi assembly reads-

Previously, Alka Lamba had resigned over Twitter due to her differences with the party’s top leaders. She had also raised her voice on being sidelined in the party’s leadership.

Speaking on the matter, Alka Lamba was quoted saying “I was asked if I had joined the Congress officially. I told him (Speaker Ram Niwas Goel) no. He also asked if I resigned from the AAP in written, I again said no. These two are facts and truth. My picture with Sonia Gandhi was shown in the Assembly. When asked about it, I showed Arvind Kejriwal‘s photo with Lalu Prasad Yadav and asked what could be implied.”

Earlier in the previous month also, Ram Niwas Goel had disqualified several legislators of the AAP party when they defected to the BJP party. Anil Bajpai and Devendra Sehrawat were the leaders how were disqualified for joining the saffron party. Another rebel MLA from the AAP party, Kapil Mishra was also disqualified in the previous month.
