New Delhi: A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation met Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Friday and demanded action against Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti for his alleged misbehavior with Ugandan women and for revealing the name of the Danish gang rape victim.
“Kejriwal and his ministers are breaking all the laws and no action is being taken against them. They are no longer ‘Aam Aadmi’ but have become ‘Khaas Aadmi’, and that’s why nobody is taking action against them,” said BJP leader Vijay Goel.
“Bharti misbehaved with the Ugandan women and revealed the identity of the Danish gang rape victim, but still he is roaming free, as he is the Law Minister of Delhi,” Goel added.
Goel warned that the BJP will be protesting on the streets of Delhi till the time action is not taken against Bharti.
“The LG has assured us and has asked for some time to take action against Somnath Bharti. We will wait for two days, and if no action is taken against him, then we will start our protest,” he added.
Earlier today the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Central Government and the Delhi Government on Kejriwal’s recent protest, and gave both of them six weeks to reply.
The notices were issued by the SC, which was hearing a petition filed by two advocates alleging that Kejriwal and his supporters had defied prohibitory orders.
On Thursday, AAP leader Yogendra Yadav ruled out any action against Somnath Bharti saying the Lieutenant Governor has ordered a judicial inquiry into the matter and the report would be out in a month.
He also said that Bharti would not be resigning as Delhi Law Minister.
Yogendra Yadav disclosed that the party investigations found no evidence to suggest that Bharti made racist comments or misbehaved with African women during the controversial midnight raid that he led at a south Delhi locality last week.
Bharti and his supporters have been accused of illegally detaining Ugandan women and forcing them to undergo medical tests.
Bharati alleged that a sex trade and drug peddling racket was flourishing in the locality with the help of foreign nationals.
He had demanded that the police should take action against the offenders.
