“I have removed myself from the party. The party does not treat women as human beings,” Bhaduri, a former ambassador to Portugal, told IANS.

She was indirectly referring to the midnight incident in south Delhi in which Law Minister Somnath Bharti, along with party workers, had illegally raided a house where African women lived and accused them of being involved in a prostitution racket.

“My outlook is no longer same as the party’s outlook. This is not the same party which was founded a year ago. There is no (question of my) resignation as I held no post,” added Bhaduri.
