BJP expresses shock over Maliwal incident

Tuesday, 14 May 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

In a scathing attack on AAP convener and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over assault on the Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal, Delhi BJP on Monday claimed that the former Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) has been under pressure and has gone missing.

Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva claimed that the residence of the Chief Minister has always been a subject of controversy and said, “It is regrettable that within Delhi, there is a Chief Minister who first got his Chief Secretary beaten up at his residence and now his female associate has been assaulted.”

Stating that misbehavior towards Swati Maliwal by Arvind Kejriwal's colleague is not the first incident of its kind, he said, “Many prominent women like his former NGO Companion Kiran Bedi, Shazia Ilmi, and Richa Pandey have left him due to his anti-women politics.

Providing protection to MLAs like Somnath Bharti, Amanatullah Khan, Sharad Chauhan, Prakash Jarwal, who have misbehaved with numerous women, is evidence of Arvind Kejriwal's anti-women mentality.”

BJP candidate Bansuri Swaraj for New Delhi expressed her shock over the fiasco and said, "This incident shocks the conscience of every Delhiite, and the BJP, above dehors political differences and ideology, stands with every woman who becomes a victim of any kind of violence. It is shocking. The allegations are extremely serious, which are that in the presence of CM Arvind Kejriwal, in fact at his behest, his OSD physically assaulted Swati Maliwal who is a woman worker of AAP. If the AAP cannot protect its own MP, if party convener Arvind Kejriwal cannot ensure the safety of his own party workers, then how can he actually speak about women safety in Delhi?"BJP candidate Kamaljeet Sahrawat for West Delhi said that when Maliwal, worked as the Chairperson of the Delhi Women Commission, kept claiming that she was continuously working to keep women safe in Delhi.
