A day after a row involving Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti and city police, I&B minister Manish Tewari on Friday criticised the action of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader saying it was "reprehensible" and that sensitivity must be displayed towards foreign nationals.
"Indo-African relationship rooted in struggle against colonialism and racism. Treatment meted out to African ladies by AAP reprehensible and obtuse," Tewari said in a post on twitter.
"Blots record as the vanguard of the struggle against imperialism and apartheid. The sensitivity we expect from others we must display too," he added.
The I&B minister was apparently referring to the row involving Bharti, who had sought a raid on a premises alleging that a drug and prostitution ring operated there involving Afritan nationals and the Delhi police. The police had refused to do Bhrati's bidding and raid the premises citing lack of warrant.
