A purported video of Maharashtra Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kirit Somaiya has emerged, which had been drawing criticism from the Opposition. Reacting to the video, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said that the video of Kirit Somaiya has exposed the true and sordid character of the BJP.


“Be it the rapists of Kathua and Unnao, or the sexual harassment allegations by Women Olympians on Wrestling Federation Chief Brijbhushan Singh, the BJP is the fountainhead of morally reprehensible anti-women crimes. BJP is a party without morals and naturally it's leaders are spineless and with a weak moral fibre,” AAP Mumbai President Preeti Sharma Menon said in a statement.


She further said that Modi government's 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' slogan is mere lip service and “far removed from the gruesome reality of crimes against women on the ground.”


“'Beti Bachao' actually means that our young women need to be protected from the BJP and it's leaders at all levels,” Preeti Sharma Menon further said.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Kirit Somaiya Tuesday wrote to Maharashtra Home Minister Devendra Fadnavis seeking an inquiry into and verify the authenticity of a video which allegedly showed the former MP in a “compromising position”. 

The purported video went viral after a Marathi news channel aired it Monday evening.

In a tweet on Tuesday morning, Somaiya said, “A video clip of me was shown on a news channel. Claimed that I have harassed many women & many such video clips available & complaints received against Me. I have never abused any woman. Request @Dev_Fadnavis to investigate such allegations and verify the authenticity of Videos."
