This is the highest reimbursement claimed among the 43 MLAs whose details for medical expenses were furnished through an RTI reply.

The Delhi assembly has 70 MLAs.

The reimbursements are from 2008 till Oct 2013, said Subhash Agarwal, an RTI activist.

Sharma is followed by Independent MLA Bharat Singh who ran up medical bills of Rs.25 lakh.

Bharatiya Janata Party MLA H.S. Balli, who recently joined the Congress, claimed Rs.17 lakh for his medical expenses.
