While the party maintained that Rai requested Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to relieve him from the responsibility of Transport Department on health grounds as he had recently undergone a major surgery, Lamba said Kejriwal asked Rai to step down as he wanted to ensure a fair probe into the alleged scam, said the report.
Last month, Rai had announced Premium Bus Service Scheme to encourage the car users to leave their vehicles and use public transport.
However, the scheme came under scanner of Delhi Government's Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) as Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had refused to give his go-ahead to the scheme.
