Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia today rejected party MLA Alka Lamba's claim that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had demanded her resignation for not supporting a resolution in the assembly on revoking late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's Bharat Ratna.

Addressing media in New Delhi, Mr Sisodia said, neither any resignation has been sought nor anyone is resigning.
 
Mr Sisodia clarified that the lines about late Gandhi were not part of the original resolution placed before the House. He said, it was a handwritten amendment proposed by a member and it cannot be passed in such a manner.

He said, the aim of the original resolution moved by MLA Jarnail Singh was only to help the victims of 1984 riots get justice. He said, no resolution mentioning late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was passed in the assembly as being reported.
 
The Delhi Assembly had yesterday adopted a resolution on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in which it was demanded that the Bharat Ratna awarded to Gandhi be withdrawn, but the AAP swiftly distanced itself from the reference to the Congress leader.
 
The matter became a major crisis within the AAP with Lamba alleging that she was put under pressure to support the resolution, which she resisted and boycotted. She claimed that she spoke to AAP supremo Kejriwal who, she said, asked her to resign as MLA.
