At the time of her ejection, Lamba, the MLA from Chandni Chowk, was criticising the Delhi government and alleged that at least two families had been forced to purchase medicines from private chemists while they were being treated at the capital’s government-run GB Pant Hospital.

Lamba raised the issue in the Assembly as a Special Mention. Responding to her claim, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said he would look into the matter, adding that the hospital in question is under heavy load of patients as it also caters to people from neighbouring Uttar Pardesh.last_img
