The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was heavily trolled on Twitter on Sunday for being anti-woman, following several of its MLAs in Delhi being either booked or arrested in cases filed by women.

The latest of these was the Delhi Police registering a case against Prakash Jarwal.

Earlier, party MLA Dinesh Mohania was also arrested on charges of molesting a woman, but later granted bail

The anger also seems to stem from the various promises the AAP government in Delhi had made in the run-up to the Assembly elections.

The promises — especially those for the safety for women in a city that has hit the headlines several times for violence against women — are being seen as flash points for this outburst.

Party MLA Alka Lamba being removed from the post of AAP spokesperson also seems to have exacerbated matters. 

Here are how people have been targeting the party on Twitter: 

It may be noted here that AAP leader Somnath Bharti was accused by none other than his wife of domestic abuse, and Twitterati showed no qualms in raking up that issue.

Others pointed out how women were clearly not given an equal footing — or in this case, seating — by the AAP.

Interestingly, even AAP leader Kumar Vishwas' comments on Kerala nurses — made during a comedy programme — and the National Commission for women asking for an apology regarding it were raked up.
