In a recent development amid the tiff between the Aam Aadmi Party and its Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba, the latter has claimed that the party's convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has asked party workers of her constituency to choose between her and the party.

Lamba, taking to Twitter on June 8, also accused Arvind Kejriwal of "dividing" the party at a time when it should be kept united.

"Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, in his meeting with party workers, proposed an option in front of the workers of Chandni Chowk assembly constituency that either choose between the party and MLA Alka Lamba. This has been happening over the period of time," Lamba tweeted.

In another tweet, Alka Lamba said that when the party workers who want to see the party strong asked chief Arvind Kejriwal to people together in the party, he gave a very vague reply, saying that "the party is mine. Whosoever has to go can go. I don't care".

Meanwhile, there was no immediate response was available from the AAP. 

AAP's rebel MLA Alka Lamba has been at odds with the Arvind Kejriwal-led party for quite some time now. Earlier in May, she announced that she would leave the party next year. 

"My journey started with you in 2013 will end in 2020. My best wishes will be with the dedicated revolutionary ground workers of the party, hopefully you will remain a strong alternative in Delhi. The last six years have been memorable and I have learnt a lot from you," the Chandni Chowk MLA said in a tweet.

In April, she had engaged in a bitter Twitter spat with AAP's Greater Kailash MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj, who had taunted her to resign from the party.
