The Shiromani Akali Dal has asked Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal to defend the allegation that his leaders in Punjab exploited women sexually.
The Akalis have asked the Delhi chief minister to fire AAP Punjab affairs in-charge Sanjay Singh and national organisation-building in-charge Durgesh Pathak from all party posts in Punjab. “Kejriwal cannot just tweet away his worries,” said Rajya Sabha member Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa. Chief minister’s adviser Maheshinder Singh Grewal asked Kejriwal to explain to Punjabis how he let moral turpitude go on under his nose.
“Either you expel all those 15 legislators and others in the scandal or we presume that you were hand in glove with them,” said Dhindsa. “The SAD has maintained all along that Kejriwal presides over people who lust for money and women,” said Grewal. “The disclosures of AAP legislator colonel Devender Sehrawat now prove it.”
The two Akali leaders said it was shameful that the AAP had not acted on the complaint of colonel Sehrawat. “We laud the courage of this true disciple of Anna Hazare and demand the unmasking of the sexual offenders for action against them,” said Dhindsa. Expressing surprise over Sanjay Singh’s saying that the allegations were baseless, Grewal said: “Every sin has its origin and Sanjay Singh can’t be his own judge.”
