A controversy erupted after a video purportedly showing Manoj Tiwari scolding a woman teacher for asking him to sing a couplet at a function went viral, prompting AAP to demand action against the BJP MP by the women's panel.
In the video, posted by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, the singer-turned-politician is seen taking an offence after being requested to sing at the function to launch a CCTV project.
After uploading the video, Sisodia said, "This is how the Delhi BJP President treats a teacher."
Meanwhile, Tiwari in his defence, said he was asked to sing even before he could start speaking at the function.
"At the event, I was called to sing even before I had spoken. Is this how you respect someone? I ensured that no action was taken against her. My objective was to ensure that no one's dignity was hurt. AAP is actually anti-teachers," Tiwari said.
"Even Kejriwal had got one woman arrested for throwing ink at him," he added.
