Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi on Monday said that action taken by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) against former Delhi Law Minster Somnath Bharti was correct as the behavior showed by the minister was extremely shameful, vulgar and unparliamentarily.
"Somnath Bharti was the law minister at that time and the way he behaved with those women was very shameful," said Joshi.
"His language was so vulgar and unparliamentarily. So, the notice sent by the NHRC against him is right in every way," she said.
The NHRC today directed the Delhi Police to take action against Bharti for leading a midnight raid at the residence of African nationals in New Delhi's Khirki Extension.
Activist-lawyer Shehzad Poonawala had petitioned against AAP leader Bharti in connection with the case.
A judicial probe had already indicted former Delhi law minister for his action.
