New Delhi, Sep 24 (IANS) A meeting of the Aam Aadmi Party’s national executive began at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence here on Thursday to discuss the internal matters of the party. Former Delhi law minister and party legislator Somnath Bharti’s case is also on the agenda, party sources said.
“All internal matters of the party are taken up in the national executive meet. Issues related to Somnath Bharti will also be discussed during the meet,” a party source told IANS, requesting anonymity.
On Wednesday, Kejriwal tweeted that Bharti should surrender to police and that by “running away” from arrest “he is becoming (an) embarrassment for the party and his family”.
“Somnath should surrender. Why is he running away? Why is he so scared of going to jail? Now he is becoming embarrassment for party n his family,” the chief minister said in the tweet.
Bharti, a legislator from Malviya Nagar constituency of Delhi, went missing after the Delhi High Court dismissed his anticipatory bail plea on Tuesday in a domestic violence case.
He was named in an FIR filed by his wife Lipika Mitra who accused Bharti of physically abusing her since their marriage in 2010. She claimed he used to beat and torture her and once even tried to kill her.
