New Delhi-14th Sep 2016
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has asked the National Commission for Women chief, Lalitha Kumaramangalam, to take action against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for allegedly snooping on a woman half the prime minister’s age.
Replying to Kumaramangalam’s letter, Kejriwal said, “I am annexing herewith substantive documentary and digital evidence of how Modi and Shah snooped and spied on a young woman half their age only because Modiji, who at the time was Chief Minister of Gujarat, had developed ‘unusual interest’ in that woman,” Kejriwal said in his letter to the chief of the National Commission for Women.
“I would urge you to initiate an inquiry and take the strongest possible action against the duo,” he added.
Kejriwal also reminded her that she had recently revealed on a TV programme recently how she once demanded action against Modi when the snoopgate recordings surfaced.
Asking Kumaramangalam to rise above politics because of association with the BJP, Kejriwal wrote, ” I would like to commen you for disclosing in a TV programme recently that you had demanded action Shri Narendra Modi ji when evidence of his involvement in snooping on a woman half his age had surfaced in 2013…” (Read the letters below)
In his letter, Kejriwal said his government was committed to taking strictest possible action against those found to be involved in crimes against women.
“However, it is a matter of deep regret that the government at the Centre has been waging a proxy war against my government and my party through unscrupulous officers in Delhi Police and other nefarious elements.
“Politically motivated cases are being foisted upon AAP legislators. In many cases, the courts have castigated the Delhi Police for its malafide action against AAP leaders.
“Though you have been a BJP politician in the past, I am sure you will rise above your narrow political affiliations and find the full truth in the cases alluded by in your letter.
“As in the past, my government will take exemplary action if credible evidence of wrongdoing is found against anyone,” the Chief Minister said.
Kejriwal’s hard-hitting letter follows a letter from Kumaramangalam, who said she was concerned about the sexual allegations levelled against his MLA, Amantullah Khan.
She had written (Read the letter below), “Moreover, this being no isolated incident, on several previous occasions specially in the last couple of months there have been allegations of violations against women committed by those in position of authority in Delhi legislature.”
