“Some unknown people threw stones at her and she was injured. One person has been detained in this connection,” a police official told IANS.

Police said the Chandni Chowk MLA has sustained a minor injury.

Lamba started an anti-drug drive at 5 a.m. from Yamuna Bazar to mark the Quit India Movement Day. She was attacked at Kashmere Gate.

Fellow AAP leader Ashutosh tweeted: “AAP’s fight (against) drugs will be intensified. AAP MLA Alka Lamba was attacked by drug cartel. Our fight will continue.”

In his tweets, he also said that Lamba was attacked by a man working in a sweet shop, which he said was owned by Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Om Prakash Sharma.

“Locals told us (that the) man (who) attacked Alka Lamba was working in sweet shop. (The) shop is owned by present BJP MLA Om Prakash Sharma,” he tweeted.

“… she was the only one in the crowd who was hit. It’s deep conspiracy. AAP will fight back,” he tweeted.

People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.

Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.

In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.

“Once the second phase is on track, steps to start the third phase will be initiated,” the official said. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has plans to have at least 100 services delivered at people’s doorsteps, the official said.
