Delhi’s lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung rejected the appointment of Swati Maliwal as the chief of Delhi Commission for Women on Wednesday. Lt Governor Jung demanded an explanation as to why his approval was not sought before Maliwal’s appointment.
Maliwal was earlier Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s adviser (grievances).
This incident saw a lot of reaction on Twitter. Pointblank7 brings select tweets on #SwatiMaliwal
#SwatiMaliwal is an individual, don't identify her as wife/sister. Shalini Gupta on d other hand is daughter/sister of Bhushans. Hypocrites!
