Swati Maliwal assault case: BJP's Shehzad Poonawalla dubs AAP as synonym of "Anti-Aurat Party", questions Kejriwal's silence

NEW DELHI: Lashing out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his silence on the Swati Maliwal assault case, BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla on Monday said that the AAP has become "Anti Aurat party", adding that the Rajya Sabha MP is being victim shamed now.

"First, there was misconduct, then misinformation, and now the alliance has descended into violence. It's been 14 days since Swati Maliwal was mistreated, and Kejriwal hasn't said a word against it. They engage in character assassination and victim shaming, with their ministers asking insensitive questions about the incident. She is being trolled on YouTube and shamed as a victim," Poonawalla said.

He said that the AAP has become an "Anti Aurat Party", which is why the Delhi CM Kejriwal supports Bibhav Kumar instead of her.

"He is shielding Bibhav Kumar, even though Sanjay Singh admitted Bibhav was at fault, yet the party still backs him. This exposes their true nature. The Delhi Police should take action, and the Delhi CM needs to explain who is behind these threats against her," Poonawalla said.

Earlier, during a joint press conference with Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav, Kejriwal declined to comment on the Swati Maliwal assault case and pushed the microphone aside.

To which Akhilesh Yadav backed him by saying, "There are other issues that are more important than this."

Swati Maliwal on Monday reached the Tis Hazari Court in Delhi to attend Bibhav Kumar's bail hearing.
