Political Reactions and Speculations

The incident has sparked political reactions, with BJP leader Amit Malviya suggesting a prior rift between Arvind Kejriwal and Swati Maliwal. “AAP RS MP and former DCW chief Swati Maliwal alleges that Delhi CM’s PA assaulted her. A call was made from the Delhi CM’s house. Remember, Swati Maliwal had maintained radio silence on Kejriwal’s arrest. She was not even in India at that time and didn’t return for a long time,” Malviya posted on X.

BJP leader Bansuri Swaraj also criticized Arvind Kejriwal over the alleged assault, questioning his ability to ensure the safety of Delhi’s women. Union Minister Anurag Thakur claimed that everything was not fine within the Aam Aadmi Party. Former AAP leader Shazia Ilmi alleged that former Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was also beaten up at Arvind Kejriwal’s house. She added that Bibhav Kumar, Arvind Kejriwal’s secretary accused of manhandling Swati Maliwal, often misbehaves and humiliates people.
