BJP Mahila Morcha staged protest at the New Delhi railway station against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal when he was about to leave for Punjab on Thursday.
Members of the Mahila Morcha of the Bharatiya Janata Party presented Kejriwal with 'bangles and roses' for, as the demonstrators said, his failure to take step against AAP member Ashutosh.
"When we went to meet Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia we had said that if Kejriwal does not immediately announce Ashutosh's expulsion from the AAP and MLAs, involved in misconduct towards women, from the Vidhan Sabha, we will present bangles. Today, we gheraoed Kejriwal as he was trying to run away to Punjab," Mahila Morcha Ppesident Kamaljeet Sehrawat told media persons.
Ashutosh had written a blog for a news website defending suspended AAP Minister Sandeep Kumar, whose sex-tape had surfaced in August.
The ex-journalist had argued that the participants in the video were having consensual sex.
The woman in the video later filed an FIR against Kumar.
