National Commission for Women

Dear Ms. Kumaramangalam,
Sub: Case / File no : 8/C160014050/2016/NCW/RS/NEE
Dear Ms. Kumaramangalam
The INDIA AGAINST CORRUPTION movement is concerned that the NCW is still to pass an order in the above registered complaint.
We are constrained to observe that the women of Delhi / India presently do not feel safe with such an incompetent and corrupt organisation around like the National Commission for Women (which is apparently filled with decrepit semi-senile politically appointed time-servers). In the face of such incompetence, perhaps it would be better that IAC votes en-bloc ((like we did in Punjab this year) for change the next time around so that dynamic intelligent young Hindustani women like Ms. Swati Maliwal can occupy your chair and investigate this complaint.

I am constrained to observe that it is well over 4 months now since the last hearing in the subject complaint and yet there is no order of the Hon'ble Commission in this matter for a complaint / counter-complaint alleging inter-alia sexual harassment by the present Prime Minister of India and the present President of the BJP Mr. Amit Shah made by Shri Ashutosh of Aam Aadmi Party.To refresh your memory of this matter, (I am not giving the exact dates since these are on your file/s) you had summoned Mr. Ashutosh Gupta, National Spokesperson of Aam Aadmi Party, under NCW's statutory powers and which you announced on national television (Times Now) was based on my complaint against Ashutosh's outrageous and misogynistic article published by the "prestigious" news portal NDTV.COM.Accordingly, Mr. Ashutosh Gupta dutifully appeared before you, refsued to answer queries about his writings and and instead counter-complained about sexual harassments allegedly committed by Shri Narendra Modi and Shri Amit Shah, which allegations he tendered in writing along with certain electronic evidences.Very shortly thereafter this hearing Shri Ashutosh gave a public statement outside NCW's office to the media saying that you had personally assured him that you would conduct an independent and fair inquiry into his complaint and would also summon Mr. Modi in the same way Ashutosh was summoned. A video of this statement broadcast live by NEWSX is at URL
Ashutosh rakes up harassement charges on PM Narendra Modi, cites snooping charges on Amit ShahThereupon another NEWX reporter interviewed you on Mr.Ashutosh's statement in your office. I was also present during this interview and I have have my recording where you confirmed that Mr. Ashutosh's "complaint" against Mr. Modi / Mr. Shah would also be registered and sent to the NCW's Complaint and Investigation unit. A video of your statement broadcast live by NEWSX is at URL
NCW vs Ashutosh: NCW chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam speaks to NewsX exclusivelyThereafter when no order on my complaint was forthcoming, I sent you my reminder dt. 9.Oct.2016 and followed it up with an RTI request dated 25.Oct.2016 since I believed Mr. Ashutosh had committed criminal Contempt of the Supreme Court in your chambers. You had with great foresight officially videographed the proceedings. My RTI request is registered as no. MOWCD/R/2016/50635 dated 25.Oct.2016 and forwarded to your Commission by Shri V.S. Yadav (CPIO/MoWCD) very promptly. It is still not replied to.In these circumstances wherein Institutions like the NCW and the DCW (Delhi Womens Commission) seem to be highly politicised paper tigers in the sense that NCW seemingly targets non-BJP politicians and the DCW Chairperson gets away with publicly imputing that one Dr. Harsh Vardhan (a BJP Union Minister) is running brothels on Delhi's GB Road, the complainants before you are fd up and constrained to give you final and clear warning to pass orders forthwith and dispose of the pending complaints against/by Mr. Ashutosh Gupta of Aam Aadmi Party.In the alternative, I and the the INDIA AGAINST CORRUPTION jan andolan (to whom this email is being circulated) shall presume that no contempt has been committed by Mr. Ashutosh and that his allegations (NCW had summoned him in his capacity as Spokesperson Aam Aadmi Party) against Mr. Narendra Modi and Mr. Amit Shah in the "Snoopgate scandal" have been ascertained by NCW as being true and correct.sincerely

where Ashutosh has written inter-alia"Indian history is full of examples of our leaders and heroes who had lived with their desires beyond social boundaries. Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru's reported affairs with many female colleagues were juicy gossip but it didn't spoil his political career. His relationship with Edwina Mountbatten is widely discussed. The entire world knew about it. Their affections continued till Pt. Nehru's last breath. Was it a sin? History is also witness to the fact that top leaders of the Congress in 1910s were worried about Gandhiji's relationship with Sarla Chaudhary, who was distantly related to Rabindra Nath Tagore. Gandhi Ji had confessed that Sarla was his spiritual wife. Kasturba Gandhi was very disturbed. C Rajagopalchari and other senior leaders of the party had to intervene. They persuaded, pressured, cajoled Gandhi-ji to leave Sarla. Gandhiji in his later days slept naked with his two nieces to experiment with celibacy. Pandit Nehru had told him not to do so as the country would rise against him but Gandhi-ji did not budge."
3) That although there was no such person as "Sarla Chaudhary" as described (which is probably a patently deliberate device devised by Ashutosh to claim she is a fictional character) it is obvious he is alluding to my deceased great-grand-aunt Sarala Debi Chaudhurani (who unfortunately has left behind no direct descendants to counter Ashutosh's calumny) using the despicable device of innuendo employed by gutter columnists.
4) I and my family are upset that NDTV.com website has published Ashutosh's distortions linking Mohandas Gandhi's sexual (masturbatory) fantasies to my deceased family members names to besmirch their iconic places in history. It is relevant to mention that Smt. Sarala Debi Chaudhurani is the pre-eminent feminist icon of India, prominent in nationalist and Congress circles and had written the musical score for both India's National Antem (ie. Jana Gana Mana) as well as the National song (ie. Bande Mataram). In fact these nation binding anthems were greatly popularised in Upper India by Smt. Sarala Debi of the highly nationalistic Adi Brahmo Samaj (a religious minority) of which I am an 'acharya' and an attack on Smt. Sarala Debi or Gurudev Rabindra Nath Tagore simply to defend a misogynistic sex-crazed rapist Minister is also an attack on our minority religion.
5) For your Eminence's information, Gandhi was never in India in 1910 (or even 1911, 1912, 1913....) whereas Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter Joseph Lelyveld writes that Gandhi was then (ie. since 1908) in a homo-erotic relationship with Hermann Kaltenbach in South Africa.

Accordingly, I say that if at all the Congress Party or Ms. Kasturba Gandhi ('Ba') was very disturbed with Mr. Gandhi in 1910s, it was because of Mr. Gandhi's homo-erotic activities and homosexual / pedophilic proclivities rather than any alleged relationship (sexual or otherwise) with Smt. Sarala Debi Chaudhurani.6) Accordingly, I sincerely hope that Hon'ble Commission impleads me as a complainant and strongly indicts Shri Ashutosh Gupta and NDTV.com. I also seek permission to submit my evidence during proceedings as and when directed by your honor.PS : I am a non-political person and am filing this in my personal capacity as a relative of Smt. Sarala Debi Chaudhurani (deceased) to defend her honour.Sincerely,Sarbajit Roy
