Always worried about women safety in Delhi, says CM
NEW DELHI: In a message to the women of Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal explained that if Delhi won't become a full state then how he would be able to take care of the security of Delhi women and also noted that he is "extremely worried" about the security of women in Delhi. "As you are already aware, we have done a lot of work for Delhi during last four years – Education, Health, Electricity, water and now CCTVs are going to be installed very soon all over Delhi. However, there are many serious problems faced by Delhiites, which can only be resolved if Delhi becomes a full state," he said in the message. The Chief Minister asked that, Why does the Delhi Police not listen to the people of Delhi? "It is because the Delhi Police is under the direct control of the Prime Minister of India. Nobody can meet the Prime Minister since he does not have time. When Delhi will be a full state, the Police will be under the control of your own elected Chief Minister, and then the Police will have to listen," CM Kejriwal said.
He also said that if Delhi becomes a full state then the government would be able to improve the situation of women security like other works. "BJP and Congress, both, in the past had said they will provide full statehood for Delhi, but of them deceived you. Aam Aadmi Party is your own party, please vote for the AAP this time. This time we will ensure that Delhi becomes a full state so that you feel safe, secure and truly independent here," said the CM.
Delhi CM on Tuesday also inaugurated development works in Dwarka. In his speech, the CM also focused on the issue of full statehood and said that if Delhi becomes a full state then the government would be able to open new colleges and universities for the students of Delhi.
