Watch: AAP MLA Somnath Bharti stoops to a new low, asks a woman journalist to become a prostitute

AAP leader Somnath Bharti has been quite controversial. In 2014, Bharti had carried out a midnight raid in Khirki Extension where Bharti and his aides had allegedly assaulted a Ugandan woman.

Aam Aadmi Party MLA Somnath Bharti today stooped to a new low. While interacting with a female journalist Ranjana from Sudarshan News, Bharti lost his cool. He asked her to ‘stop doing bh*dwagiri’ followed by directing her to become a prostitute.

Somnath Bharti was speaking on the recent incident where a man allegedly threw red chilli powder on Delhi chief Arvind Kejriwal. He gets personal with the journalist, following which he threatened that the channel will close down after 2019, “yeh bh*dwagiri chalegi nahin, 2019 ka intezar kar lo.”

When the journalist reminded him to maintain dignity while speaking, he accused the journalist of misbehaving on camera. When the journalist asked him to apologise, he accused her of acting like a middleman for the BJP. He then asked her to stop doing the ‘bh*dwagiri’ and ‘dh*ndhe pe baith jao‘, which in crude Hindi is akin to asking her to become a prostitute.

Somanth Bharti is not the only AAP leader to accuse the media of being a ‘middleman’. AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has regularly used the term ‘dalali’ to refer to those journalists who question him.

During the Punjab elections in 2017, Kejriwal was accused of neglecting Delhi as he tried to form government in other states. Irked by the criticism, Kejriwal had then hit out on Shekhar Gupta and referred to him as a ‘dalal’ too.
