NCW chief a member of BJP’s national executive: Ashutosh
AAP leader Ashutosh on Monday hit out at the chairperson of National Commission for Women (NCW), saying Lalitha Kumaramangalam is a member of BJP national executive, after the women’s body summoned him for his controversial blog in which he had defended sacked Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar over an “objectionable” CD.
He questioned whether the NCW is summoning every writer who wrote about “consensual” sex or picking and choosing cases. The AAP leader said he will react to the notice if he receives it.
“Ms Mangalam as a chairperson of NCW, you should not lie on a national TV that u r not BJP member. Wikipedia writes You are still a member. Lalitha Kumar Manglam is member of BJP national executive/was national secretary of BJP. If I get notice from NCW, I will react.
“I hope Lalitha Kumarmangalam, member of BJP Nat Ex/chairman NCW is summoning every writer who wrote about consensual sex. NO pick and choose,” (sic) Ashutosh tweeted. The NCW has summoned Ashutosh for his controversial blog in which he had defended Kumar over an “objectionable” CD, saying it was a “consensual” act and that he had done no wrong.
Meanwhile, Delhi Police have registered a complaint against Ashutosh for his remarks in his blog in defence of sacked AAP minister Sandeep Kumar who is facing the charge of rape.
Senior police officers of the North-east district confirmed that they received a complaint at the Jyoti Nagar police station. In the complaint filed by Subodh Jain, an RTI activist and former journalist, he demanded police to send Ashutosh for a “mental check up” and register a case against him under appropriate law.
The complainant further added that Ashutosh’s “low-grade” argument has “deeply hurt” him as well as a large number of people in the country and all over world.
