Citing busy schedule due to ongoing Assembly Session, the MLA asked for another date and the Commission fixed July 3. However, Bharti's wife Lipika appeared before the Commission and said that she wants to go ahead with the police complaint. In spite of counseling session arranged for the couple, Lipika said that there was no chance for a patch up as Bharti will 'never change'.

"As you are aware that in compliance with the Constitutional duty entrusted with me by the virtue of myself being the MLA, Malviya Nagar, I am duty bound to attend the ongoing sessions in the Delhi Assembly. The House will remain in session from 2 PM until June 30...," the letter submitted to the Chairperson of DCW in behalf of Bharti stated.

"I am requesting you to re-schedule the proceedings to any other date after June 30 at 3 PM," the letter stated. After the letter, DCW Chairperson Barkha Shukla asked the MLA to appear before the Commission on July 3. "We have now posted the matter for July 3 and have notified the same to him," she cited.

Bharti's wife Lipika appeared before the Commission today and said that her husband had also sent her a message over phone citing his inability to be present before the panel due to the ongoing Assembly session.
