AAP leader Ashutosh today hit out at the chairperson of National Commission for Women, saying Lalitha Kumaramangalam is a member of BJP national executive, after the women’s body summoned him for his controversial blog in which he had defended sacked Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar over an “objectionable” CD.
He questioned whether the NCW is summoning every writer who wrote about “consensual” sex or picking and choosing cases. The AAP leader said he will react to the notice if he receives it.
“Ms Mangalam as a chairperson of NCW, you should not lie on a national TV that u r not BJP member. Wikipedia writes You are still a member. Lalitha Kumar Manglam is member of BJP national executive/was national secretary of BJP. If I get notice from NCW, I will react.
“I hope Lalitha Kumarmangalam, member of BJP Nat Ex/chairman NCW is summoning every writer who wrote about consensual sex. NO pick and choose,” (sic) Ashutosh tweeted.
