The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) disapproved of Bharti's alleged misbehaviour with the journalist, saying he should not have talked like he did on the television.

An FIR was registered against Bharti by the Noida police on the complaint of the woman anchor.

Tiwari alleged Bharti insulted the entire women community and demanded Kejriwal to take action against him.

He also targeted Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal, saying "she was not even in a position to take cognisance of Bharti's action".

Tiwari said the BJP will file a complaint against Bharti with the DCW and the Press Council of India and protest against him till action is taken.
