Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has removed Alka Lamba as its spokesperson, reportedly for straying from the party line on a minister accused of corruption.
AAP acted hours after Ms Lamba told reporters that Gopal Rai, who quit as Transport Minister on Monday, was asked to step down by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The party had said that Mr Rai quit as transport minister - he has five other portfolios - because of health reasons.
"I am a disciplined worker of the party and I respect its every decision. If I have unknowingly made any mistake then I will remedy it, so that the party's anti-corruption fight does not suffer because of me," tweeted Ms Lamba, who has been suspended from the post for two months.
Responding to media questions this morning, Ms Lamba said she had "no such intimation" from the party.
