#MeToo: DCW Chief urges PM Narendra Modi to oust MJ Akbar


New Delhi: The chairman of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), Swati Maliwal, on Friday penned a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to oust Minister of State (MoS) External Affairs MJ Akbar from the government on grounds of alleged sexual misconduct.

“Please remove MJ Akbar immediately from the government. It is not right that a man holding such a significant post continues to be in office even after facing flak from several women for alleged sexual misconduct,” she said.
In her letter, Maliwal urged the Prime Minister to set up an investigation committee at the earliest and initiate a probe against the people who have been accused of sexual misconduct.
