Measures put in place to make Delhi safe: Sheila

Bangalore, April 4, 2013, DHNS:
Sheila Dixit
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit on Friday conceded that the law and order situation in the national capital is poor, but blamed it on the confusion created by multiple agencies that handle security. “There is a lot of confusion in the way things are managed in Delhi, but we are doing everything to prevent incidents like last year’s gang rape,” she said.

Addressing a press conference here, Dixit said, “Measures are being put in place to make Delhi a safer place to live in. The emergency helpline meant for women (181), for instance, has received about 1.16 lakh to 1.25 lakh calls since last December, and the problems of the callers have been addressed.” She was replying to Narendra Modi’s remark, which asked what the Congress, which cannot protect a small state like Delhi, can do for the nation. On the death of Sarabjit Singh, she said, “There needs to be an inquiry into the matter to satisfy the citizens of India. Even people who have never met him have been saddened by the incident. What Pakistan did was unjust.” She said acts like this ruin India's efforts to establish a better, more peaceful relationship with Pakistan.Answering a question on Sajjan Kumar’s aquittal in a case pertaining to the 1984 Sikh riots, she said BJP and the Akali Dal have joined hands to politicise the issue, and that they are behind the protests in Delhi.

“What they are doing reflects their disrespect towards the judiciary. Whatever the court has said in its wisdom should not be politicised. If anybody is not satisfied with the judgement, they can always go to a higher court,” she said.
