Ritu Verma, wife of former Women and Child Development Minister Sandeep Kumar, said Sunday that her husband had fallen prey to a conspiracy and she would stand by him through thick and thin. Kumar, who was accused of committing rape, surrendered at the Rohini police station on Saturday. He was sacked from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet after an ‘objectionable’ CD emerged.

“My husband is innocent, I stand by him. Rape charges against my husband are wrong,” said Ritu. She said that she and her family were firmly behind Kumar and would stand by him through everything that lies ahead.

”This is a political conspiracy against us. Our case is ongoing. The truth will come out before everyone very soon,” said Ritu. She said she was concerned only about her husband and her family and refused to comment on Kumar’s removal from the Cabinet. After he was sworn in as minister for Women and Child Development in February 2015, Kumar had announced on March 8, 2015 — International Women’s Day — that he touched his wife’s feet everyday and sought her blessings.

Kumar married Ritu in April 2011 amid stiff opposition from her family. The two first met at DU’s Dyal Singh College and courted for eight years before tying the knot.

Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia had put Kumar to task in March for having insisted that his wife’s name be inscribed on a plaque that was to be put up in a school during the inauguration of classrooms. Kumar reportedly also publicly humiliated the principal of the school after she objected to this demand. A complaint was made to the Kejriwal and Kumar was made to apologise to the principal.

        Similar allegations were made against Kumar Vishwas and it was well publicised in all news channels his case there was not even allegations of illicit s*x or rape by anybody . lt;br/gt;Even the woman denied any s3x ,yet the media channels orchestrated a campaign of rumor mongering !lt;br/gt;He was simply blamed for RUMORS and yet Delhi police filed charges against him .lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And when Delhi police gave him a clean-chit and closed the case for complete lack of evidence ...the media channels were nowhere to be seen !

          This is not the 1st time - lt;br/gt;In 2014 , just a few months after AAP formed the govt in delhi , Late at night , a news item was flashed across on all news channels that a top AAP leader named -"Raman Swami" had been arrested for raping a woman. lt;br/gt;The problem ?? No one in AAP had heard of this man , but the news channels were claiming he was a top AAP leader !. LOL !lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;By morning the scrolling banner had been removed from the TV channels , but no retraction was ever issued by the networks. lt;br/gt;To this day you can see the same news item on the websites of these channels.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Politics is a dirty game , it does not matter how honest you are. The ones who survive are the ones who manage to raise the highest sums of money .
