New Delhi: Disgruntled Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Alka Lamba on Friday said that she has no hesitation in joining the Congress party, instead she will feel honoured if any such proposal comes her way.
“I don’t have any such proposal (of joining Congress) from Congress yet, but it will be a matter of respect for me if any such proposal comes. I had given 20 years to the party. Congress will decide on the matter. An uninvited guest isn’t welcomed anywhere,” said Lamba, an AAP MLA from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk.
It was also reported that Lamba called on some senior Delhi Congress leaders a few days back. However, while speaking to a leading portal, she denied saying, “So far, I have not reached out to anyone in the Congress, neither has the party reached out to me.”
Notably, Lamba and the AAP leadership have been at loggerheads after she claimed in December that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had asked her to resign for protesting an alleged proposal seeking to revoke former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi’s Bharat Ratna. The AAP, however, had rubbished the claim.
Last month, she had alleged that the party leadership was ‘weakening’ her and said she is being accused of attempting to switch over to the Congress. Before joining Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party, Lamba was part of the Congress women’s wing. In 2013 Delhi elections, she had registered thumping victory from Chandni Chowk Assembly seat.
