Party leader Bansuri Swaraj denied on Friday that the BJP was applying a “double standard” in the Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh issue, adding that FIRs had been filed against him and that the legal process will go as it should after an investigation.
As the new co-convener of the Delhi BJP’s legal cell, Swaraj, the daughter of the late foreign minister Sushma Swaraj, gave her first news conference.
In addition, she took aim at the Arvind Kejriwal administration, claiming that it had “delayed” by nine months the appointment of public prosecutors to handle cases brought under the POCSO Act (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences).
She stated that justice delayed is justice denied.
The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president and BJP MP Singh, who has been accused of sexual harassment by some wrestlers, has not yet been detained by the Delhi Police.
Swaraj, a Supreme Court attorney, refuted the accusation that her party applied a “double standard” in this situation.”The FIR has been filed in that instance, and the police are now in charge of it.
I have complete faith in the legal system, and I know that following the investigation, the court process will go as it should,” she stated.
