ALKAAam Aadmi Party leader and Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba has been removed from the post of party spokesperson for commenting on the resignation of former Delhi transport minster Gopal Rai.

While AAP leader Gopal Rai said on Tuesday that he had quit as Delhi’s Transport Minister on health grounds,  Alka Lamba told reporters that transport minister Gopal Rai had been “relieved” of the portfolio to make way for a fair probe into the Premium Bus Service scheme.

Meanhile, Lamba took to Twitter to react on AAP’s decision and wrote:

Last month, Rai had announced Premium Bus Service Scheme to encourage the car users to leave their vehicles and use public transport.

However, the scheme came under scanner of Delhi Government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) as Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had refused to give his go-ahead to the scheme.
