After quitting the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) last month, former Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba on Friday said that she will be taking the primary membership of the Congress party. Lamba will take the membership at the Congress party headquarters on Saturday.
In the morning, she said that she will be taking the membership on Friday, but later she said that due to some reasons, she will be taking the membership on Saturday.
“Today, for some reason, I will not be able to join the Congress. Now I will be joining the Congress tomorrow,” she said.
On September 6, soon after quitting the AAP’s membership, she had announced that she would join the Congress in the presence of interim President Sonia Gandhi.
Soon after, on September 19, Lamba was disqualified from the Delhi Assembly by speaker Ram Niwas Goel on the grounds of defection.
Perhaps, Lamba is yet to take the primary membership of the Congress party.
Lamba served the Congress party for 20 years and later she quit the party to join AAP. She contested and won the 2015 Assembly elections from Chandni Chowk.
