‘I just want to work’: Swati Maliwal

New Delhi: Expressing disappointment over the ongoing issue over her appointment as the DCW chief, Swati Maliwal on Thursday said that she was not interested in the politics surrounding the matter, and added that she just wanted to work.

“I want the Delhi Commission for Women office to be opened up again. I am not interested in the politics of the issue at all. I just want to work,” said Maliwal.

Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal had earlier in the day written a letter to Najeeb Jung saying ‘Modi wins; we are defeated, and hence, we request the Lieutenant Governor with folded hands to sign the women commission file’.

In his letter, he had also claimed that Jung was following the Prime Minister’s directives on the matter.

The Lieutenant Governor, who has been locked in a tussle with Kejriwal over the appointment and transfer of senior bureaucrats, declared Maliwal’s appointment as “ultra vires” of the rules.

The AAP has rejected allegations of nepotism made by the BJP and the Congress over Maliwal’s appointment. Silencing all critics, the AAP Government said that it picked the person who is best suited for the job. (ANI)
