"During the one day special session of Delhi Assembly, he used improper language against me several times and the Speaker had removed it from the proceedings of the Assembly. Also, during a convention on 7 August, he threatened me saying that I was quite active and I should better be careful."

She also alleged that "OP Sharma was behind the throwing of stone on her on the morning of 9 August in which I sustained injury."

"The most unfortunate thing about the incident was that it occurred in presence of 8 policemen who failed to stop the attack," she said.

Adding that the incident occurred when she started her anti-drug campaign at Priyadarshini colony of Yamuna Bazar, Lamba said that she was apprised of drug menace by the locals during a Mohalla Sabha meeting.

"I was appealed by the locals especially the women to stop the drug menace so that crime in the area could go down," the AAP MLA said.

Lamba claimed that she had informed the local police as well as DCP North Delhi Madhur Verma about the drug menace in the area and had provided evidence related to it but police failed to prevent it.

She expected the DCW chairperson to use her "powers" and initiate legal action against the BJP MLA OP Sharma.

"I hope that you will use your power against BJP MLA OP Sharma so that the anti drug campaign could continue and women could feel safe with decrease in crime in the area."
