New Delhi [India], Sept. 4 (ANI): Dubbing the allegations made by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Devinder Sehrawat on exploitation of women by his party colleagues in Punjab as extremely serious, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday sought an explanation from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

"When such kind of allegation is coming within the party, it is not politics because Kejriwal had been accusing that politicians are playing politics trying to tarnish the image of Aam Aadmi Party but over here we are getting allegations from within the Aam Aadmi Party," said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.

"Naturally, Kejriwal has to answer and these are very serious allegations which should not be dust under the carpet," he added.

Sehrawat, the MLA from Bijwasan, has written a letter to Kejriwal stating that he had heard about senior party members in Delhi and Punjab exploiting women on the promise of giving them election tickets.

Sehrawat admitted that he had no proof to substantiate these reports.

However, the AAP described Sehrawat's letter as the "rant of a disgruntled MLA".(ANI)
