With another Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA being booked on charges of misbehaving with a woman, the BJP on Friday came down heavily on the state government asserting that the women in the state were not even safe from the leaders they elected themselves.

Speaking to ANI, BJP’s Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay said that the people of the city were slowly beginning to see how the AAP MLAs were involved in a string of crimes ranging from corruption to the abuse of women.

“They (AAP) are also being accused of misbehaving with the very women who go to them with their problems. What do these people want to do with Delhi? This is only going to result in a massive movement against the Delhi government by the people, as they have been clearly been cheated,” he said.

Condemning the charges on which MLA from Deoli Prakash Jarval was booked, Upadhyay further said that the AAP, during its campaign, had assured to take steps about women’s safety but incredibly, most of the cases against their leaders were for molesting or harassing women.

“This is turning into quite a regular affair for AAP and they are becoming an anti-women party, which the BJP will not tolerate,” he added.

Echoing similar sentiments, BJP leader Vijender Gupta asserted that AAP leaders were getting bolder by day as they had the protection of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was defending every untoward act done by the leaders of his party.
