The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday said that party MLA Alka Lamba wanted to quit the party and was finding reasons to do so.
The party's reaction came after Lamba on Sunday claimed that AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had unfollowed her on Twitter.
She also expressed her displeasure to the AAP leadership, asking them to clear their stance on her position in the party.
Reacting, AAP spokesman Saurabh Bhardwaj told IANS that the party has no intention to remove her. "She wants to leave the party and is finding reasons for the same.
"The party has no intention to remove her. It is very easy for a party to suspend people. We even took back people after suspension when we found that they have changed.

पहले से ही बहुत से ऐसे कारण मौजूद होने के बावजूद भी मेरी तरह दूसरे MLAsआज भी पार्टी से जुड़े हुए हैं,

"You have to follow certain disciplines and decorum in the party or for that matter in any organisation," he added.
Regarding the "unfollowing" on Twitter, he said it was purely the Chief Minister's choice who he wants to follow.
In December, Lamba had claimed that the party had sought her resignation. She also said she had been removed from the WhatsApp groups. The party denied this.
