Both AAP and Swati Maliwal have been engaged in a war of words after a video released on Friday showed her in an argument with the staff at Kejriwal's residence. HT cannot independently verify the authenticity of the video. 

The Aam Aadmi Party launched a blistering attack on Maliwal, accusing her of being the ‘face and pawn’ of a Bharatiya Janata Party conspiracy against Kejriwal. 

“The video shows her (Maliwal) threatening Kumar. The charges levelled by Maliwal are baseless. Maliwal insisted on meeting Kejriwal. She is Rajya Sabha MP and she should know that the CM has a busy schedule. Kumar told her that the chief minister is busy and unable to meet her. She shouted at him, pushed him and tried to enter the residential portion of the CM House,” Delhi minister Atishi claimed.

Maliwal responded with an X post, wherein she alleged that the party had been trying to protect a ‘goon’. “The leaders who joined the party (AAP) yesterday declared a worker who has been with it for 20 years an agent of the BJP. Two days ago, the party had accepted the truth in a press conference and, today, it has taken a U-turn,” she added.
