I am doing whatever is possible to ensure women safety in Delhi: Kejriwal

New Delhi, Dec 13 (UNI) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said he is trying to do whatever is possible at his level to improve the situation for women's security in the national capital.
Addressing a women's annual programme at FICCI, Mr Kejriwal said,'Delhi is the national capital of the country, and I believe every citizen of Delhi must have access to top-quality government services. Delegates from several nations are coming to witness government health and education improvements, but it disappoints me that Delhi is regarded as the 'rape capital' of India. I am doing whatever I can to increase the safety of women in Delhi.'
'I have deployed 13,000 bus marshals to deal with the problem of eve-teasing and harassment inside buses. We motivated them, we held a meeting with all of them in a stadium, where I told them I will take care of your needs but you have to keep buses secure for women. Recently one bus marshal identified a suspicious-looking man was taking a little girl with him. The marshal immediately shut the doors down and apprehended the man. It turned out she was kidnapped from a railway station and the girl was rescued. You all will be happy to know, that a lot of women have been appointed as bus marshals now. Someone asked me, how will women combat miscreants in buses? I gave him the example of a bus marshal Geeta Devi who bravely captured a pickpocket from a bus and handed him to the police. We are hearing many other stories of bravery shown by women bus marshals,' he said.
