AAP’s charisma is gradually diminishing: Delhi Commission for Women

Delhi(ANI): Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Barkha Shukla Singh on Tuesday said that the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party’s charisma is gradually diminishing in the eyes of the general public.

“The AAP’s charisma is gradually diminishing in the eyes of the public. All such parties that start with a revolution end like this and so will AAP,” Singh told ANI.

“So much of arrogance is not good. He (Vishwas) has got the summons. We sent it six days back. He should come and clear the issue. The lady first went to these people, but got no justice and then she came to us. So, it is our duty to help her and we will extend all support to her,” she added.

Meanwhile, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas is likely to appear before the DCW today over a complaint lodged against him by a female volunteer of his party.

Vishwas has been accused of having a physical relationship with a volunteer in the run-up to the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Vishwas had unsuccessfully contested against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi from Amethi in the general elections.

The victim has alleged that Vishwas’s wife has been spreading rumours that she found him in a compromising position with the poet-turned politician. She has also alleged that she is being defamed on social media.

Vishwas had, however, yesterday termed the woman’s allegations as baseless and put the onus on the Delhi Police which he said did not take any action on her complaint. He also accused the media of twisting the entire story to malign the party’s image.
