BJP seeks security for DCW chief

The Delhi BJP on Monday raised the issue of threats received by Delhi Women Commission chief Barkha Singh and submitted a memorandum to police chief B S Bassi for enhancement of security for women.

The Congress, in a separate briefing, raised the issue of price rise and slammed both the BJP government at the Centre and the AAP government led by Arvind Kejriwal for doing nothing to check the rising  prices of vegetables and pulses.

A delegation of women office bearers of Delhi BJP met the police commissioner and demanded visible enhancement of police deployment to ensure women security.

The saffron party’s activists also sought proper investigation into the threats received by Delhi Women Commission Chairperson Barkha Singh and demanded adequate security for her.

The party demanded deployment of women cops around markets, commercial areas and women colleges.

The BJP’s team urged the police to seek views of social activists and resident welfare activists to identify areas where women feel insecure.

At a separate event, the Delhi Congress Committee Chief spokesperson  Sharmistha Mukherjee said due to increase in prices of food items budgets of poor and the middle class salaried people had gone haywire.

Mukherjee criticised the central government for increasing the petrol and diesel prices twice in the last 15 days.

Price of petrol has gone up by Rs 3.13 per litre and Rs 3.96 litre – imposing a total burden of  of Rs 7.09 per litre on consumers. Similarly, diesel prices have gone up by Rs 2.71 per litre and Rs 2.37 per litre, resulting in a total increase of Rs 5.08 per litre for consumers in just a fortnight.

Mukherjee said it is really surprising that the government is increasing the prices despite a massive reduction in the crude oil in the international market.
