Former Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti, who was behind the famous riads on prostitute racket in south Delhi during the first rule of AAP, has been advised finally by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to surrender and not become a fugitive and embarrass the party.
If Kejriwal had reigned in two years ago with similar advice, Somnath Bharti would not have become an embarrassment to the party as he is now. In his strongly worded advice, Kejriwal told Bharti via his tweet: "Somanath should surrender. why is he running away? Why is he so scared of going to jail? Now he is becoming embarassment for the party and his family."
"Somnath shud surrender.Why is he running away?Why is he so scared of gng to jail? Now he is becoming embarasment for party n his family (@ArvindKejriwal."
Somnath Bharti is facing charges of domestic violence against his wife and bid to murder, which are non-bailable offences. While his arrest is imminent, Kejriwal has scored over his opponents by openly advising him not to run away.
Here are some reactions to Kejriwal’s action:
