Alka Lamba Controversies

In August 2015, a few months after she had been elected MLA for the Chandni Chowk constituency, Lamba was charged with vandalism and destruction of property in an incident which occurred within her own constituency. On 10 August 2015, a mob armed with lathis, swagger sticks and cricket bats attacked and badly vandalized a liquor shop located in the Kashmere Gate area of old Delhi. CCTV footage recorded shows Lamba leading the attack and vandalising the shop along with her supporters. The footage shows her reaching straight for the shop counter and violently pushing and spilling and throwing away the items on the counter. Following this, her supporters also vandalised the shop. According to reports, this happened because the shopkeeper was a BJP supporter and had objected to the AAP defacing his shop windows with posters eulogising Lamba and her party.

Representing National Commission for Women on 16 July 2012, as one of the member of the enquiry team of 2012 Guwahati molestation case, Lamba met the victim of a Guwahati molestation case, held a press-conference and revealed the victim’s identity. The ‘tip-off’ made local media houses work overtime to find the victim’s real identity. Some TV channels interviewed the victim’s neighbours to come to the conclusion that the girl’s name was not what she was forced to say by the channel that recorded her molestation and near-stripping. Such acts of Lamba’s were widely criticised. Following this, she was removed from the fact-finding committee of NCW.

Alka Lamba Social work

Lamba started the non-governmental organisation India Foundation in 2006 with the aim of empowering women and youth and encouraging them to take part in the political, social and economic development of India. The NGO deals mainly with women’s issues. The organisation arranged a blood donation campaign in 250 districts of India on 15 August 2010, the 63rd Independence Day of India, with the goal of collecting 63000 units of blood; it made a record when over 65,000 people donated blood in one day throughout the nation and worldwide. The campaign was promoted by famous Bollywood personalities including Salman Khan, Ritesh Deshmukh, and Dia Mirza. On the appeal by Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and many other Bollywood celebrities donated blood. Russian Ambassador to India Alexander Kadakin also appreciated and extended his support to this campaign.
