Arvind Kejriwal defends Somnath Bharti after he asked journalist to become a prostitute

It is rather unfortunate that instead of condemning behaviour of his colleague, Arvind Kejriwal and his team resorted to deflecting the issue and brazening it out.

Stooping to a new low, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today instead of reprimanding his party MLA and senior leader Somnath Bharti for using derogatory language on air chose to defend him by indulging in lowly whataboutery.

Bharti was caught on camera referring to a Sudarshan News channel journalist to ‘take to prostitution’ for asking him an uncomfortable question. After widespread social media outrage, Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal condemned his behaviour. Somnath Bharti then decided to brazen it out and accused PM Modi of ‘imprisoning’ his estranged wife Jashodaben.

He even accused the PM of ‘lusting’ after one Mansi Soni and abducting her.

Irked by Maliwal’s condemnation, Bharti lashed out on his colleague for not approving of his inappropriate behaviour. Bharti asked Maliwal to take ‘appropriate’ steps against PM Modi on the above allegations.

Kejriwal tries to deflect the issue

Not to lose out on an opportunity to take a dig on PM Modi, AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal, who has still not condemned his colleague’s behaviour, attacked PM Modi and asked why is everyone ‘scared’ of Modi.

He then even retweeted tweets praising himself which describe him as courageous.

Swati Maliwal joins in

Not to be left behind, Swati Maliwal, too, retweeted tweets where other AAP leaders had asked her to act against Modi.
