Partymen exploiting women in Punjab, Delhi: AAP MLA writes to Kejriwal
AAP leader Dilip Pandey said that the party will respond to such baseless allegations.
New Delhi: Even before the party could deflect the negative publicity it attracted over the Sandeep Kumar CD case, the AAP finds itself in the midst of yet another controversy after a party MLA raised concerns of “debauchery” in the party.
Devinder Sehrawat, party MLA from Bijwasan, has written to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying he had heard that senior partymen in Delhi and Punjab are exploiting women. Importantly, he admitted he had no proof to substantiate these reports.
"I saw disturbing reports about women being exploited in Punjab in return for, or on promise of, a ticket. Am meeting people in Chandigarh... Delhi MLAs are unaware about what is being done by (senior party members) in Punjab," the Times of India quotes Sehrawat as saying in the letter.
Treading cautiously, the AAP has chosen not to react to Sehrawat's comments. However, party leader Dilip Pandey said that the party will respond to such baseless allegations.
Meanwhile, former AAP minister Sandeep Kumar is now under arrest on allegations of raping a woman.
