AAP might field Pankaj Gupta from Chandni Chowk to replace Alka Lamba

Assembly elections will be held in Delhi in 2020 and the ruling AAP is looking to repeat its performance in 2015 when the newly-formed party had won an overwhelming 67 seats out of 70.

Earlier in August, Alka Lamba, who is the AAP MLA from Chandni Chowk, said that she has decided to resign from the primary membership of the party and will contest the upcoming Delhi Assembly polls as an independent candidate.

The party, too, had said that it was ready to accept her resignation.

The Chandani Chowk MLA had refused to campaign for the party in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. She even abstained to participate in Arvind Kejriwal's roadshow after she was asked to stand behind his car. She also engaged in a Twitter spat with AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj, who asked her to resign from the party.
