Stepping up campaigning for the upcoming Assembly Elections in Delhi, Bharatiya Janata Party's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi on Saturday continued to target the Aam Aadmi Party.
On microblogging website Twitter, Bedi asked “what kind of security and dignity can women expect from AAP's leadership that itself has blatant sexist and perverse mindsets?” She also said that a police complaint has been lodged against AAP leader Kumar Vishwas for making sexist comments at a recent rally.
Calling AAP 'anti-women', BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain, meanwhile, said that his party will file an FIR against AAP for making derogatory remarks against Kiran Bedi. The BJP will also lodge a complain to the Election Commission apropos of language used by AAP leaders. On Friday, BJP released its second set of five questions for AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal. One of the five questions was that why all AAP's women leaders were deserting the party.
Notably, the former IPS office had earlier this week sent a legal notice to AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal for using her photograph in his party's poster campaign without her permission.
The Aam Aadmi Party has recently put up posters on numerous auto-rickshaws plying in the national capital, asking the people of Delhi to choose between Kejriwal and Bedi for the post of chief minister.
In the posters, the picture of Kejriwal has the word "imandar" (honest) printed below it while that of Bedi has "avsarvadi" (opportunist).
Earlier, BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi, too, had sent a notice to Kejriwal for using his photograph in similar posters, before the BJP declared Bedi as their chief ministerial candidate.
The AAP pitted Kejriwal against Mukhi, even though the BJP had said that they would contest the Delhi election under Prime Minister Narendra Modi without naming a CM candidate -- the BJP, however, later named Bedi for the post after she joined the party earlier this month.
