DCW summons Kumar Vishwas over illicit relationship charge

Ever since the Aam Aadmi Party has entered the political arena, it has never failed to be in news. Now, it's AAP member Kumar Vishwas who has left tongues wagging over his illicit relationship with a party volunteer.

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has summoned Kumar Vishwas after receiving a complaint from the female volunteer, who has accused him of staying mum over the linkup rumours.

"Kumar Vishwas has been summoned to state his stand on the allegations made by his party volunteer. We have asked him to appear before us tomorrow," an official of the DCW told IANS.

"The volunteer had worked for a year in Amethi for the party and now it is a matter of her respect, and so Kumar Vishwas should turn up and give his clarification," the official said.

The female volunteer, who is upset with her alleged link up with Kumar Vishwas, has lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police Commissioner and AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal also.

Earlier, she had requested Kejriwal to look into the matter. However, the AAP chief didn't pay heed to her request.

Following the link-up rumours, the female volunteer's husband has parted ways with her.

DCW chairperson Barkha Shukla Singh has asked AAP leader Kumar Vishwas to appear before the women panel on Tuesday, May 5.

Sometime back, English daily DNA got access to a couple of emails in which a complainant named Ajay Vohra had accused Kumar Vishwas of accepting black money and having physical relation with a volunteer.

Ajay also alleged that the accused AAP leader's wife had caught him red-handed in a compromising position.

Vishwas said the allegations were false and baseless and part of a defamation campaign against the Aam Aadmi Party by rival parties.

"We will not be affected or frightened away by such attempts to malign us with lies. We will fight till our last breath against political corruption," the AAP leader said.
He said he is yet to receive the notice and will respond appropriately.

Delhi BJP leader Vijendra Gupta said that Vishwas and the Delhi Chief Minister should come forward to clarify.

"If he is not clarifying that means there is something fishy.... we are with that woman and will support her," he said.

Congress leader Ajay Maken said it was a serious complaint and should be looked into.
The woman, who claims to have campaigned for Vishwas in Amethi during the 2014 Lok Sabha election, said, "Just because of this allegation my husband has left me. I have two kids. I come from a middle class family where they feel that since Kumar Vishwas is AAP spokesperson and a known face, maybe there was something between the two.

"I am unable to explain. That's why I want Kumar Vishwas to speak on this but he is not doing so. That's why I had to go to the Women's Commission."

She alleged that she also received a threatening call over her complaint.
