On Thursday, the AAP changed track and tried to play down the controversy, using statements such as “AAP is family” and “Don’t politicise the issue”. In fact, it tried to turn the tables on the BJP instead.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Swati Maliwal’s assault allegations on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s aide Bibhav Kumar has triggered a political slugfest with various political parties responding to the incident. While the AAP chief dodged questions on the issue, Congress General Secretart Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said she was with Maliwal in this case.

She said, “If any atrocity happens to any woman anywhere, we stand with the woman. I always stand with women irrespective of which party they belong to. Secondly, AAP will discuss amid themselves and make a decision. It is up to them.”

On Thursday, the AAP changed track and tried to play down the controversy, using statements such as “AAP is family” and “Don’t politicise the issue”. In fact, it tried to turn the tables on the BJP instead.

In a joint press conference by Kejriwal and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, when reporters persisted for clarification on the row, Yadav said “there are more important issues than this”.

“BJP is not loyal to anyone. BJP is a gang that slaps false cases,” he added. Kejriwal remained silent and passed the mic to Sanjay Singh who launched into an attack on the BJP: “The entire country is saddened by the fact that even today, when a Kargil soldier’s wife was paraded naked, the PM remained silent.”

Meanwhile, the BJP has been seeking action on Kejriwal and his aide Bibhav Kumar, alleging that the AAP top brass was involved in the incident.

After Maliwal alleged assault by Arvind Kejriwal’s close aide on Monday, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh on Tuesday admitted that Bibhav Kumar assaulted and misbehaved with the former DCW chief at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s civil lines residence in the national capital and assured that strict action would be taken against Kumar.
