Singh, a former Congress MLA, had a public confrontation with Bharti's lawyers last week when they came to depose before the DCW on his behalf in the case of alleged harassment of Ugandan women.

Singh said that she was holding a constitutional post and there was no need to resign from it.

“It is a constitutional post and I still have one year and four months left in my tenure. The AAP government is harassing me and targeting me because I summoned Bharti in connection with the ill-treatment of Ugandan women during the midnight raid in Khirki Extension,” Singh said.

Earlier this month, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief Arvinder Singh Lovely had asked all partymen to quit from various posts in government-run boards and commissions.

When asked about Lovely's direction to partymen to relinquish their posts in boards and commissions, the DPCC chief said he had withdrawn his directive.

Several AAP leaders had earlier said that in keeping with the tradition, Singh should have resigned after her party was ousted from power.

The DCW chairperson had summoned Bharti over allegations that he had led a group of supporters against some African women after claiming that they were involved in a drug and prostitution racket.

Bharti did not depose before the commission on January 24 as directed by it but sent his lawyers who were not allowed to put across their views by the DCW chairperson.

"Those Ugandan women had come to me with their complaints and I did my duty. If they are removing me because I summoned the Law Minister then it is totally wrong. It is an atrocity on me," Singh said.
