New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Women chief Barkha Shukla on Wednesday criticised the Aam Aadmi Party for naming Swati Maliwal as her replacement, opining that the post should be given to an experienced individual.

"The Aam Aadmi Party's true face and character is now visible for everyone. The DCW chief post is a very big post and should be for someone very senior, who is experienced. Maliwal, who I understand is Kejriwal's cousin, is being put at this post so that no justice can take place,"Barkha Shukla told ANI.

Maliwal, who is currently advisor (grievances) to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, would be replacing Shukla as the DCW chief.

She is an RTI activist and the youngest member of India Against Corruption.
