Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday urged NCW Chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam to initiate an inquiry against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah over the alleged snooping of a young woman in Gujarat.
“I am annexing herewith substantive documentary and digital evidence of how Modi and Shah snooped and spied on a young woman half their age only because Modiji, who at the time was Chief Minister of Gujarat, had developed ‘unusual interest’ in that woman,” Kejriwal said in his letter to the chief of the National Commission for Women.
“I would urge you to initiate an inquiry and take the strongest possible action against the duo,” he added.
Kejriwal’s letter followed a letter to him two days ago from the NCW chief, who said the Commission was deeply disturbed by the alleged sexual molestation of a woman by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator Amanatullah Khan.
“Moreover, this being no isolated incident, on several previous occasions specially in the last couple of months there have been allegations of violations against women committed by those in position of authority in Delhi legislature,” she said.
In his letter, Kejriwal said his government was committed to taking strictest possible action against those found to be involved in crimes against women.
“However, it is a matter of deep regret that the government at the Centre has been waging a proxy war against my government and my party through unscrupulous officers in Delhi Police and other nefarious elements.
“Politically motivated cases are being foisted upon AAP legislators. In many cases, the courts have castigated the Delhi Police for its malafide action against AAP leaders.
“Though you have been a BJP politician in the past, I am sure you will rise above your narrow political affiliations and find the full truth in the cases alluded by in your letter.
“As in the past, my government will take exemplary action if credible evidence of wrongdoing is found against anyone,” the Chief Minister said.
