Arvind Kejriwal, who had claimed to be the “massiah” of the residents of Delhi is actually a protector of a bad man who has no respect for woman. The bad man of Kejriwal is Somnath Bharti, the cabinet minister who was arrested last year in case of domestic violence.
The national convenor of AAP did not leave any stone unturned to protect him but the police took the action against Bharti on a complaint filed by his wife. Kejriwal’s minister had arrested under various sections of the IPC including 307 (attempt to murder), 420 (cheating and dishonesty), 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust), 417 (punishment for cheating), 313 (causing miscarriage without woman’s consent), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt), 498a (husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation.
Bharti, who had evaded arrest for nearly a week, had surrendered in the last week of December 2015 after the Supreme Court ordered him to give himself up in the domestic violence and attempt to murder case filed by his wife.
Lipika, his wife had filed a complaint of domestic violence with the Delhi Commission for Women on June 10 alleging that her husband had been abusing her since their marriage in 2010.
Bharti used the derogatory remark for women
Bharti, who was allegedly involved in a midnight raid targeting a group of African nationals in Malviya Nagar in 2014 during AAP’s 49-day stint in government, had said: “I am fully confident that if Delhi government is given full freedom (over security), beautiful women will be able to go out even after midnight without any fear. We will provide a fully-secure Delhi…”
The remark of Bharti aroused a lot of criticism and the rival parties criticised the AAP government for shielding Bharti.
CPI(M)’s Brinda Karat said his comments —
made at the Delhi assembly — reflected his “mentality” and quality of discussion at the House. She also described Bharti as a serial offender.
At that time, Kejriwal did not react against Bharti and protected him. It clearly shows the stand of Kejriwal favouring the wrong persons.
