Kejriwal, Sanjay Singh's Pic With Aide Bibhav...

Two days after acknowledging that Arvind Kejriwal’s former PS Bibhav Kumar had misbehaved with swati Maliwal at the delhi chief minister’s official residence and promising action against him, aam aadmi party (AAP) mp sanjay singh was spotted at the lucknow airport with kejriwal and Kumar, sparking yet another controversy. On Thursday, the AAP changed track and tried to play down the controversy, using statements such as “AAP is family” and “Don’t politicise the issue”. In fact, it tried to turn the tables on the bjp instead.

In a joint press conference by kejriwal and Samajwadi party chief Akhilesh Yadav, when reporters persisted for clarification on the row, Yadav said “there are more important issues than this”. “BJP is not loyal to anyone. bjp is a gang that slaps false cases,” he added. kejriwal remained silent and passed the mic to sanjay singh who launched into an attack on the BJP: “The entire country is saddened by the fact that even today, when a Kargil soldier’s wife was paraded naked, the PM remained silent.”

Just a day ago, Singh had met Maliwal at her residence. While neither have spoken about the meeting, it is learnt that he assured Maliwal that her concerns will be addressed. According to sources, Maliwal had wanted a clear signal to be sent that what happened with her was wrong and action should be taken against Kejriwal’s former PS. The senior AAP leader has already done that through a press conference which may help him build confidence with Maliwal. However, now the question is what action will the chief minister take against his trusted aide. Officially, Kumar’s appointment has already been terminated by Delhi’s Lieutenant governor Vinai Saxena.

In lucknow, Singh referred to the prajwal revanna case to up the ante and said thousands of women were allegedly raped by the leader who was allowed to flee by BJP. The AAP rajya sabha mp then recalled how Maliwal — as DCW chief — was thrashed by the delhi Police when she had gone to Jantar Mantar at night to support the cause of women wrestlers.
