The woes for AAP and its men keeps getting grimmer by the day. With the recent allegations of being an ‘anti-women’ party to cases of sexual harassment against AAP MLAs, the ruling party in Delhi is struggling to strike a balance. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who is known to be vocal about his opinions and accusations has surprisingly maintained stoic silence on the matter. Today while leaving for Punjab, the CM was jostled by protesters demanding an answer.
AAP has alleged that the security of the Chief Minister was compromised and the schedule of the CM was leaked on Delhi Police’ behalf. The party people said that Kejriwal was being targeted by BJP by sending the crowd at the railway station from where he was to board a Shatabdi train to Ludhiana. Describing it as a ‘huge security breach’, AAP has demanded CCTV footage to be seen.
Arvind Kejriwal, who is on a four day visit to Punjab aiming the upcoming Punjab polls was met with protests at the New Delhi railway station, who wanted him to speak up on the misconduct cases that have surfaced against his party men. Though the people from AAP are accusing of severe manhandling happening at the spot.
Deputy CM Manish Sisodia tweeted on the same accusing of a pre planned attack. He said that despite Police security, Kejriwal was pushed and the presence of media on the spot only confirms that it was a conspiracy. He also accused Delhi Police of turning mute spectators.
While AAP’s Ashutosh received backlash for his demeaning remark, another convener from Punjab was accused of sexually exploiting his maid and then later giving Rs 1 lakh to keep the matter under wraps.All these incidents have agitated the female protesters and the opposition have been demanding strict action from the party’s side. BJP in wake of the incidents is also holding mass contact drive to ‘expose’ the happenings in AAP.
Delhi Police will not be accompanying the CM on his Punjab visit quoting absence of jurisdction there. While Arvind Kejriwal has left for Punjab where he will be targeting Malwa region for polls, his party men are calling out for strict action at such unsafety for a CM.
