BJP protests against AAP leader Somnath Bharti

New Delhi, June 11 (IANS) The Delhi BJP protested outside AAP Leader Somnath Bharti’s office here Thursday following allegations of domestic violence levelled him against by his wife.

Holding banners and placards against Bharti, the protesters included a sizeable number of BJP women members. They gathered outside Bharti’s office in south Delhi’s Malviya Nagar and demanded his resignation as a legislator.

As Bharti tried to leave in his car, the crowd blocked his way and gathered around his vehicle. It was only after police intervention that the protesters budged.

“The real face of the AAP and its leaders has been exposed. How will they protect the women in Delhi, when women in their own homes are unsafe. He (Bharti) should resign,” Bharatiya Janata Party’s Delhi Unit President Satish Upadhyay told IANS.

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Wednesday issued summons to Bharti after his wife Lipika Mitra accused him of domestic violence.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator, who was a law minister in the earlier AAP government that came to power in Delhi in December 2013, has termed all the charges “baseless”.
