Alka Lamba, MLA from Chandni Chowk constituency, said she took the decision after consulting the people of her constituency through Jan Sabha.
Lamba has been on crossroads with the party leadership for some time and has claimed in the past that she has been disrespected on several occasions by the party.
After the Aam Aadmi Party's defeat in the Lok Sabha polls, she had asked party president Arvind Kejriwal to take responsibility for the defeat, following which she was removed from the official WhatsApp group of its lawmakers. Lamba had also refused to campaign for the party during the general elections and had also refrained from participating in Delhi CM Kejriwal's roadshow after she was asked to walk behind his car during the event.
