For the first time ever, a current chief minister is running away from his elected position and “responsibilities” to contest for the chief minister position of Punjab, a state that is going to polls. You guessed it – the notorious Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP party. Someone said that AAP does not trust a Punjabi – and instead go for a non-Punjabi import?

It is also alleged that “She was told you should stop loving your body so much and compromise and unless you do that you will not rise in the party”.

Soni, an Aam Admi Party (AAP) activist based in Delhi had reportedly complained to the Arvind Kejriwal, the party’s president and Delhi Chief Minister and the AAP party about being molested by Ramesh Wadhwa, also an party member. After months of complaints no action was taken by the party. Not just that, after much delay the accused was arrested and released on bail. Instead of punishing the guilty, Soni, now deceased has accused Kejriwal of asking to “adjust karo” or “compromise”. Sadly, this led to depression and the victim Soni committed suicide, even though she has children and an extended family. Police is now investigating.
