IF GOVERNMENT CANNOT PROTECT WOMEN, THEN CHIEF MINISTER SHOULD RESIGN – VIJENDER GUPTA
Expressing its grave concern over the sense of insecurity felt by women of the capital, BJP has said that what can be more shameful than the fact that the women of such a state feel insecure in which a women is the Chief Minister. BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has demanded the Chief Minister and Delhi Police that they should take such majors so that the women may feel secure. If the Government feels itself helpless in protecting the women then the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit should resign on moral grounds. He expressed these views in the context of a report of the survey conducted by Delhi Government.
Women and Child Development Department of Delhi Government had conducted a survey among the women, girl students and Resident Welfare Association whether the women of the capital feel safe after getting out of their houses? The results of the survey are quite surprising. Women, school and college going girl students, house wives told the surveyor that anytime in the day they did not feel safe anywhere and in the capital. The reason is that while walking on the roads, lane, foothpath etc. the danger is that any anti social element, criminal can easily loot or tease them while they are alone and escape easily.
In Delhi the women have no option but to walk on the roads, streets and narrow lanes. Most of the women told that they have to take the help of their family members while going to Metro Stations and returning home from there. Travelling on rickshaw, auto or walking on footpath is not safe. There is no sufficient arrangement of security in the evening or during night on the roads and lanes of Delhi. Taking advantage of it, the criminal elements snatch away chain, purse, mobile etc. and also tease them and easily escape. If any women protest then that women is attacked by knife. Some days ago, drivers of the Chief Minister after getting intoxicated, indulged in eve teasing of two girls student in Model Town area. The girl student called their brother on mobile and only after they could save themselves.
