"Now since he (Om Prakash Sharma) has repeated such an offence, we will be taking it up with the highest authority and we will also be now supporting Alka Lamba in filing a court case against him", DCW chief Swati Maliwal said.

She also cited the matter was above party politics and using such a derogatory language was unacceptable.

"It's not about party politics. If in the Delhi assembly that is supposed to legislate for women protection, a legislator can insult a fellow woman legislator, it's really shocking. It needs to be set right. Nobody should be able to misbehave with a woman and get away with it", she added.

"What kind of a message are they (BJP) trying to convey? I strongly feel this should be above party politics. What has been said is extremely wrong", she asserted.

Maliwal also said the DCW had last time in another incident  recommended filing of an FIR against Om Prakash Sharma but Delhi Police did not comply.

Sharma was suspended from the Delhi assembly yesterday for two days for making derogatory remarks against Lamba during an argument over the reasons behind homeless people's deaths.
