After Nitish Bhardwaj accused his ex-wife, Smita Gate for not allowing him to meet his twin daughters, thereby causing him mental harassment, the latter finally reacted to all such claims. Issuing her first-ever public statement, the IAS officer remarked that all such accusations were false and made in order to defame her. Calling it malicious for her image, Smita expressed:

“I, Mrs Smita Bhardwaj, wife of Shri Nitish Bhardwaj, am now constrained and feel it necessary to release this statement to the press, and the public at large, in order to protect the interests of my minor twin daughters Devyani and Shivaranjani. The necessity for this public statement has arisen since my estranged husband, Shri Nitish Bhardwaj has been continuously making false and fabricated statements and allegations/representations to the press, as well as through various other media channels, ‘as regards my alleged abduction of my own daughters’. False and malicious allegations to malign my image.”
