New Delhi: AAP's Sandeep Kumar would go down in history as the first minister in India to get kicked out of a ministry over a sex scandal.
On Wednesday night, Delhi government's Women & Child Welfare Minister was sacked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal just before the media started playing tapes, of Kumar's alleged escapades in a house that looked like his hunting ground, on loop.
In a CD sent anonymously to media houses, Kumar allegedly appears with two different women. In one of them ? a nine-minute video ? he is seen in an "objectionable" position with a woman, whom he later advises to meet him "only after 9 pm" and never in public.
The CD also shows still pictures allegedly showing Kumar with another woman in different degrees of proximity.
It appears that instead of helping women in need, the women welfare minister was helping himself to women to satiate his needs.
"AAP is a party of ideals. AAP has a zero tolerance policy towards corruption, scandals," deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia told reporters. "Ministers found taking bribes were removed immediately as soon as it was found. Action will be taken swiftly against any member irrespective of status or position," he said.
We sould remind you here that in a speech that went viral last year, Sandeep Kumar told his audience on International Women's Day (8 March) that he takes his wife's blessings almost every day before venturing out.
"Main roz subah inke pair choo kar ghar se nikalta hoon (I touch her feet before leaving the house every morning)," he had said.
