Coming down heavily on the BJP which alleged that she had staged molestation to show Delhi police in a bad light, Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal on Saturday said she will keep fighting till she is alive.
Several BJP leaders on Friday raised questions over Maliwal's molestation claims, alleging that the person whom she accused of the crime is an AAP member and her "drama" was part of a conspiracy which has now been "exposed".
Taking to Twitter, Swati Maliwal posted: "Let me tell those who think that they will scare me by telling dirty lies about me. I have done many big things in this short life, with a shroud on my head. I was attacked many times, but did not stop. With every atrocity, the fire inside me grew stronger. No one can suppress my voice. I will keep fighting as long as I am alive!" said Maliwal in a tweet.
जिनहें लगता है मेरे बारे में झूठी गंदी बातें कर मुझे डरा देंगे उनको बता दूँ। मैंने सर पे कफ़न बांध इस छोटी सी ज़िंदगी में बहुत बड़े काम किए है। मुझपे कई अटैक हुए पर मैं रुकी नही। हर अत्याचार से मेरे अंदर की आग और बढ़ी। मेरी आवाज़ कोई नही दबा सकता। जब तक ज़िंदा हूँ लड़ती रहूँगी!— Swati Maliwal (@SwatiJaiHind) January 20, 2023
Delhi BJP Working President Virendra Sachdeva had said that again the "deceitful" face of the AAP has been "exposed" in front of the people of Delhi and they are shocked to see that Harish Chandra Suryavanshi who was accused of "eve-teasing" Swati Maliwal is actually a prominent activist of the AAP in Sangam Vihar.
The DCW chairperson had claimed that she was dragged by a car for 10-15 metres when she was reprimanding a drunk man who had stopped near her and asked her to sit in his car. When she went near the driver's side, he quickly rolled up window and her hand got stuck and she was dragged, Maliwal had claimed.
After her claim, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had tweeted, "What happened to the law and order situation in Delhi? The morale of the goons has increased so much that even the women's commission chairperson is not safe. Only this work has been given to LG Sahib by the Constitution. LG Sahib is requested to leave politics for a few days and focus on law and order. We will fully cooperate with him."
दिल्ली में क़ानून व्यवस्था का क्या हाल हो गया? गुंडों के हौसले इतने बढ़ गये कि महिला आयोग अध्यक्ष भी सुरक्षित नहीं है। संविधान में बस एक यही काम LG साहिब को दिया है। LG साहिब से निवेदन है कि कुछ दिन राजनीति छोड़ कर क़ानून व्यवस्था पर ध्यान दें। हम पूरी तरह उनका सहयोग करेंगे https://t.co/5ijcFGcua7— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) January 19, 2023
Reaction of BJP leader Virendra Sachdeva
Delhi BJP working president Virendra Sachdeva on Friday tweeted a picture of Harish Chandra Suryavanshi, the man accused of harassing and dragging Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal by his car for about 15 metres with her hands stuck in the window late at night earlier this week, claiming that Suryavanshi is a prominent Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker in Sangam Vihar.
In the picture, the accused could be seen campaigning with AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal.
"It has become clear that the incident was a conspiracy by the Aam Aadmi Party to defame Delhi internationally by showing the national capital as an unsafe city for women," Sachdeva said.
