Yesterday, an AAP leader Alka Lamba was suspended from the post of party's spokesperson and senior Congress leader Kamal Nath backed out from party’s election panel for the Punjab Assembly polls amid uproar over his alleged role in the 1984 Sikh pogrom.

After being suspended as AAP’s spokesperson for being off-message, party legislator Alka Lamba said yesterday she is ready to "repent" if she has committed any "mistake".

"I am a disciplined worker of party and respect its every decision. If I have done any mistake unknowingly, then I am ready to repent for it so that my party will not face any trouble in its fight against corruption," Lamba tweeted.

On the other hand, Kamal Nath resigned "on his own volition" as party in-charge of Punjab, anguished over the "mischievous" campaign against him by party opponents regarding the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, the party said today.

Talking to media, Congress’ senior spokesman Anand Sharma dismissed suggestions that the Congress buckled under pressure to replace him and insisted that the "dishonest, perverse, and mischievous" narrative by opposition against him was done with an eye on elections.
