New Delhi Jan 29: The Delhi Commission for Women chief Barkha Singh made serious allegations against the Aam Aadmi Party government on Wednesday, accusing them of threatening her to force her out of the panel.

Singh, who has been at loggerheads with the Arvind Kejriwal government over action against law minister Somnath Bharti, accused the government of targeting her as she had not paied heed to their diktats.

“They (AAP) talk of providing safety to women; when Women Commission’s chairperson has to undergo such atrocity,how will other women be secure? They are harassing me,” she said.
“What did I do? I only tried to redress the grievances of the women who came to me. I just did my duty. They are doing just because I summoned Somnath Bharti?” she said.

“It is a constitutional post, only the Lt Governor can remove me. Won’t be scared by such things,will meet LG, demand Somnath Bharti’s arrest,” added Bharkha Singh.
