NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party today alleged that the central government through the office of Lieutenant Governor is trying to undermine the democratic mandate of the people of Delhi.

The party's reaction came after the tussle between AAP Government and the LG over appointment of Swati Maliwal as the Delhi Commission of Women chief.

"The LG's office under instructions from the central government has attempted to thwart the appointment of Delhi Commission of Women Chief," AAP said in its statement.

Senior AAP leader said that citing procedural lapses, attempts have been made to decline Delhi Government to run and appoint members to the crucial Delhi Commission of Women.

"The LG's office has acted as an extension of the central government led by the BJP when it publicly criticised and declined permissions to the new DCW chief.

"The central government through the office of Hon. LG is trying to undermine the democratic mandate of the people through its action," it said.

The party claimed that it will continue striving to execute the people's will, protect women's rights and give protection to them.
