NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday rebuked Delhi BJP chief and Lok Sabha MP Manoj Tiwari for allegedly breaking the seal of premises in New Delhi. The top court, described Mr Tiwari’s action as “misplaced bravado” including his chest thumping and a misplaced political agenda.
A bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur slammed Tiwari, saying the court was “extremely pained” due to his conduct as he is an elected representative and should have behaved responsibly. The bench said Tiwari levelled frivolous allegations against the court-mandated committee, which shows how “low he can stoop”.
The court, however, did not order any action against him. Instead, the judges said it is up to the BJP to take action against him.
A complaint was filed by the civic body against the parliamentarian from northweast Delhi constituency which had alleged that the BJP leader had broken the seal of the premises in Gokalpuri area in northeast Delhi after which the apex court had on September 19 issued contempt notice against Tiwari.
