Delhi Women's Congress chief Barkha Shukla Singh resigns,
accuses Ajay Maken of abusing women workers
4/20/2017 3:58:58 PM

The former chief of the Delhi Commission for Women named senior Congress leader Ajay Maken in a press conference today and accused him of misbehaving with her and other office bearers of the Delhi Women's Congress.
1Barkha Shukla Singh has accused Ajay Maken of harassing women party workers.
2Singh also accused Rahul Gandhi of ignoring complaints of harassment.
3"Gandhi and Maken have used issue of empowerment of women to gather votes," said Barkha Shukla Singh.
The latest to abandon the turbulent Delhi Congress ship is Delhi Women's Congress chief Barkha Shukla Singh, who, in an open resignation letter released to reporters today, has accused senior leader Ajay Maken of "abusing and threatening" women party workers, and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi of ignoring their harassment.
"On the day of Navratra on March 28, I along with a number of other fasting women workers of the party, tried to meet Rahul Gandhi. But we were rudely told that he didn't care about Navratra and asked us to go home. The same night, he was partying at Shangri La hotel," she said at a press conference, flashing a purported video of Rahul inside the hotel.
The former chief of the Delhi Commission for Women named senior Congress leader Ajay Maken in the press conference, accusing him of "misbehaving" with her and other office bearers of the Delhi Women's Congress. "When the same was brought to the notice of Rahul Gandhi, our pleas fell on deaf ears," she alleged.
"It is sheer hypocrisy that when (BJP leader) Vinay Katiyar makes absurd remarks about Priyanka Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi's office expects us to protest against the same. But when we complain of Ajay Maken abusing and threatening us, we are told to take the matter with Maken himself," she said.
"With utmost regret I have to say that the Congress party under the leadership of Mr Rahul Gandhi and Mr Ajay Maken have only used the issue of empowerment of women to gather votes and it means nothing to them," Singh said in her statement to the press.
'WHY IS RAHUL GANDHI HIDING?'
In her letter, Singh has directed most of her attack on Rahul Gandhi, accusing the 45-year-old leader "hiding" from the party workers. "The one pertinent question we need to ask is why is Rahul Gandhi hiding? Why is he scared of meeting his party workers who ask him questions?" she asks.
Singh claimed "senior most leaders of the party" are of the view that Rahul is "unfit" to lead the Congress, though she did not name anyone. "They choose not to say anything for reasons best known to them," she says.
Singh's revolt against her party came two days after former Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely and former Youth Congress leader Amit Malik quit the party and joined the BJP, days before Delhi votes in the MCD election.
