FIR Not A Deterrent For Me, Not Done Anything Wrong, says Swati Maliwal


NEW DELHI: DCW Chief Swati Maliwal, who has been set up for charges of inconsistencies in enlistment in the ladies’ board by the Anti Corruption Branch, on Tuesday said the FIR will “not go about as an impediment” for her even as Delhi Minister Satyendra Jain turned out in backing of her. The Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) chief said the FIR won’t go about as an obstruction for her and the board will proceed to work and bring up issues which is “exasperating her adversaries the most”.

“Regardless of the possibility that I am sent to prison, I will set up a report on the state of ladies there and submit it to the Delhi government. The Delhi government and the Center are cooperating towards guaranteeing security of ladies,” she told columnists in New Delhi. “There are a couple people whom I might not want to name, they are attempting that the two don’t work together. Communication crevices are being made.

This FIR is fake, I have not done anything incorrectly,” she said. “On the off chance that we need to change the framework we will need to give a few penances. On the off chance that some individual can demonstrate defilement of a solitary rupee in my life, I will quit living. I am a supporter of Lakshmi Bai and Subhash Chandra Bose…I am not going to be terrified,” she included. A case under segments 13(D) of Prevention of Corruption Act, 409 (criminal break of trust) and 120B (discipline of criminal scheme) of the IPC was enrolled against Ms Maliwal, ACB chief Mukesh Kumar Meena said.

The ACB had taken up the test on a protestation by previous DCW Chief Barkha Shukla Singh, who affirmed that few AAP supporters were given plum posts in the ladies’ board. Ms Singh, in her dissension, had recorded the names of 85 individuals who, she guaranteed, landed positions “without essential qualifications”.

The ACB had been testing the matter for the last two-three months and taking into account the scrutinizing of Maliwal’s representatives, it was found that due method “was not followed in arrangements,” said an officer, including that an aggregate of 91 arrangements were observed to be made without supposedly taking after due procedure.

The officer said the ACB group may visit the DCW office one week from now to question Ms Maliwal once more. Ms Maliwal was addressed for more than two hours by ACB authorities on Monday. In the mean time, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain commended the DCW boss’ endeavors saying, “The ACB is scrutinizing her methods, she is shaking the trees that are not intended to be shaken.”
