The BJP and Congress have stepped up attack on Somnath Bharti, but the AAP has been supporting him. Bharti had conducted a raid in Khirki extension and accused the Ugandan women of being involved in prostitution and drug trafficking.
"There were rumors that the AAP volunteers caught those foreign women whereas they were caught by the police. Video itself is the proof as it shows exchange of white powder inside the car", said AAP spokes person.
However, the Ugandan women continue to stick by their statement against AAP raid. One of them said, "Being black is a problem. They used racist remarks."
The Delhi Commission for Women had summoned Somnath Bharti and Bharti failed to appear and sent his lawyers.
DCW chief Barkha Singh said, "Bharti's lawyer misbehaved and shouted at me. I am going to complain to the Lieutenant Governor." Bharti lawyer Rishikesh Kumar said, "We were not bring allowed to be heard."
BJP, meanwhile, has stepped up attack on Somnath Bharti. BJP leader Vijay Goel said, "BJP will keep protesting till Somnath Bharti is removed from his post."
