Shobha Vijender, wife of former Delhi BJP president Vijender Gupta, on Monday approached Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to complain about alleged harassment by Rohini MLA Rajesh Garg. Shobha, who is the Rohini councillor, had accused Garg of using unparliamentary language against her.
The matter relates to an NGO, Sampurna, run by her from the community centre in Rohini Sector 9. After meeting the CM, Shobha said the CM told her that he would look into the matter in a day or two.
"I have all the proof and slips to prove that I have been given the space to run my NGO Sampurna from this community hall. Rajesh Garg came to the community hall on pretext of performing a religious function and started misbehaving with us. Police did not cooperate with us either. I had to face humiliation and I want a reply from the CM," the councillor alleged.
Rajesh Garg said she stopped him from entering the hall and that he did not misbehave with her. "According to the MoU, she had to open an account which she did not. I had asked for all the documents. She has encroached upon the community hall," Garg alleged.
In a letter to Kejriwal, Shobha wrote, "Aam Aadmi Party MLA Rajesh Garg from Rohini used unparliamentary language against me and the NGO, Sampurna, founded by me. He indulged in character assassination in full public view."
She has also alleged that the staff of her NGO was threatened and forced to leave the centre. "The crowd was provoked by Rajesh Garg to throw Sampurna's movable property outside the premises of the centre," she wrote.
Speaking to Newsline, she said, "I have been working from this centre since 2004. It was given to us according to a rule of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, which states that E category community centres can be used by NGOs as office space." According to her, Garg and 200 of his supporters shouted slogans and rebuked 10 women working for her NGO.
