Senior advocate Prashant Bhushan on Wednesday criticised the Aam Aadmi Party for naming Swati Maliwal as the next Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief, opining that “politically neutral” people should be appointed to the post.
“Politically neutral people should be appointed to such posts.
Kejriwal confidante Swati to be appointed DCW chief. AAP to follow Cong lead to appoint partisans to statutory posts. Alternative politics?— Prashant Bhushan (@pbhushan1) July 15, 2015
The AAP is also misusing these posts like others and has completely gone off the path of alternative politics, which it had set out to take,” Bhushan said.
Maliwal, who is currently adviser (grievances) to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, would be replacing Barkha Shukla as the DCW chief.
