AAP Suspends Alka Lamba As Party Spokesperson


New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leader Alka Lamba was suspended from the post of party spokesperson after she told reporters that Transport Minister Gopal Rai had been ‘relieved’ of his portfolio in order to ensure fair probe into the Premium Bus Service scheme.

Lamba later tweeted that she accepted the party decision. The party had earlier said that senior minister Gopal Rai was being relieved of the Transport Department on health grounds. The portfolio has now been given to his cabinet colleague Satyendar Jain.

The departments left with Rai now include Labour, Irrigation and Flood Control, General Administration Department (GAD), Development and Employment.
