Niramla Sitharaman on the assualt

"It is astonishing, in fact disturbing, that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has not uttered a word regarding his party MP Rajya Sabha Swati Maliwal, who was misbehaving with and assaulting up in the CM's residence," stated Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The CM has not said anything, done anything, or replied to anything. I have been informed today that he was spotted strolling around with the accused in Uttar Pradesh.The treatment of a woman who chaired the Delhi Commission for Women is just deplorable, she declared.
