New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday targeted Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre over women’s safety, questioning about allocation of Rs.2,000 crore Nirbhaya Fund for that purpose.

AAP leader Dilip Pandey in a press conference alleged: “BJP is taking revenge of its failure in elections by compromising with safety of women in Delhi.”

“Rs.2,000 crore fund was allocated for women’s safety after Nirbhaya case but nobody knows where that money has gone,” he said, adding that the Centre had promised to open 660 rape crisis centers across the country but only 36 were operational.

The party targeted Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung over deployment of 4,000 Home Guards in Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses.

Pandey said a file regarding deployment of around 4,000 marshals in DTC buses to ensure security for women in public transport, was lying pending with Jung’s office.

“The AAP has given one week’s time to the Lieutenant Governor to release it and if he failed to do so, the women wing of the party will meet him,” Pandey said.
