AAP has 'anti-women character', alleges BJP's Satish Upadhyay.

New Delhi: The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday attacked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), accusing it of having "anti-women character" after its Okhla legislator Amanatullah Khan was arrested for threatening a woman.

"This party (AAP) has anti-women character and is filled with criminal minded people who don't respect women," said BJP Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay.

"And when police arrested their party legislators and carried on its work, then (Delhi Chief Minister) Arvind Kejriwal tweets saying that Modiji's police is arresting its MLA," Upadhyay said.

"Should police leave its role of maintaining law and order in Delhi? Should police allow lawlessness in the capital and allow jungle raj?" Upadhyay added.

The BJP leader attacked the AAP after its legislator from south Delhi's Okhla constituency Amanatullah Khan was arrested on charges of threatening a woman of dire consequences.

A case was registered at the Jamia Nagar police station against the AAP legislator on 20 July under Section 506 (criminal intimidation) and Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code.

Hitting out at the AAP, Upadhyay said, "The complainant is a member of AAP and in her complaint she has said she was threatened with dire consequences. This kind of people come out of Amanatullah Khan's residence who threaten and socially abuse the woman, who had gone to his residence to lodge her complain."

"Today the women of Delhi are not safe on streets. Even the wives of their MLAs do not feel safe at their home, whether it is the case of Manoj Kumar or Somnath Bharti. And the example of AAP supporter Soni committing suicide is in front of all," Upadhyay added.
