New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh on Thursday appeared before the National Commission for Women (NCW) in compliance with the women panel`s summon dated September 5.

Talking to reporters after coming out of the NCW office, Ashutosh said: "I appeared before them (NCW) because I have faith in the Constitution of this country and the institutions established by it.”

"I told them that your letter is violation of my fundamental right. The Constitution gives me freedom of expression," he said.

Later, the AAP spokesperson tweeted his reply to the NCW in which he raked up Prime Minister Narendra Modi's snoopgate issue. He also said that NCW chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam has promised to register a complaint against Modi.

"I told them that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is a married person, but it has been alleged that he was harassing a woman half his age when he was Chief Minister of Gujarat. In this connection, IAS officer Pradeep Sharma has given an affidavit in the Supreme Court for which he was victimised," Ashutosh said.

He said that a tape of this matter is also in the public domain in which BJP president Amit Shah is supervising and monitoring intelligence agencies, but no action has been taken in this matter to this day.

Ashutosh attached a copy of Sharma`s affidavit as well as the audio clip along with his written reply.

He said that if such a serious matter is not probed by NCW, the women of the country would lose faith in the body.

"(NCW Chairperson) Lalitha Kumaramangalam was gracious enough to accept that complaint and asked her office to register a complaint and initiate action against snooping," he said.

Here is what he tweeted:

The NCW had summoned Ashutosh for writing an article in defence of sacked Delhi Minister Sandeep Kumar, which the women`s panel found "insulting and demeaning" towards women.


Sandeep Kumar was suspended after a sex tape featuring him surfaced last month.
