The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers on Thursday hold a demonstration outside Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence in New Delhi, a day after he removed his Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar over an alleged sex tape.
Police used water cannon to disperse the demonstrators.
Earlier on Thursday, Sandeep defined the video as a political conspiracy against him and said “I am being targeted because I have an Ambedkar statue at home. Dalits are always suppressed in this country, said Kumar.”
A nine-minute video featuring Sandeep Kumar in an objectionable position with two wome left the Aam Aadmi Party red faced on Wednesday.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said he had received an “objectionable” CD on him and there cannot be any compromise with propriety in public life.
Later, Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the Aam Aadmi Party government has “zero tolerance” towards any such act and action was taken within half-an-hour of receiving the CD.
Kumar represented Sultanpur Majra constituency and was the only Dalit face in the Delhi Cabinet.
