Comments on DCW chief: Somnath Bharti apologises
New Delhi, Jan 25: Somnath bharti, law minister of Delhi, apologised for his media comment on Delhi Commission for Women.

The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday distanced itself from the series of statements made by Bharti. Bharti has earlier hit out at the Delhi Commission for Women by calling it a political organisation and accusing its Chairperson Barkha Singh of being a Congress member.

Bharti said, "Delhi Commission for Women is a political organisation. Barkha Singh is from Congress, that's why she is in so much haste."

In response, Barkha hit back at Bharti and said, "Bharti's allegations are baseless. This shows his nervousness. We act on any complaint registered with us and there is no political link."

On Friday, Bharti chose to attend a kite flying festival and failed to appear before the Delhi Commission for Women and instead sent his lawyers.

The trouble began for Bharti when two Ugandan women accused him of misconduct during a night raid at their place, which, according to AAP, was conducted to expose drug-sex mafia. BJP and Congress have been demanding Bharti's resignation over the issue and on Saturday, a Saket court sought a report from the DCP South on the complaint of a second Ugandan national.

Bharti already has three FIRs registered against him for the raid.
