Congress tackles Kejriwal Govt over DCW chief appointment

The Congress party on Wednesday assaulted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the arrangement of Swati Maliwal as the new Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) boss, asking how might he be able to designate somebody who is the wife of an AAP pioneer.

“I need to ask Mr Kejriwal, is he the same individual who in January 2014 had said that Barkha Singh won’t be fair in light of the fact that she has a place with the Congress party. Why today you named a man who is the wife of your Haryana group pioneer?” said Congress pioneer Ajay Maken.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) hosts designated get-together pioneer Swati Maliwal as the new head of the DCW.

Maliwa, would be supplanting Barkha Shukla, whose residency closes not long from now.
