Women’s Rights Bill on cards in next assembly session

By NewsGram Staff Writer

New Delhi: Stressing on women safety issue in Delhi as a top priority, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday that he is all set to bring the issue of the Women’s Rights Bill in parliament in the next assembly session, providing more power to the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW).

arvindkejriwalThe Charter of Women’s Rights Bill 2015 will provide more administrative and judicial powers to DCW and incorporate the recommendations made by Justice JS Verma Committee following the Nirbhaya rape case.

During the consultation event organized by the Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC) at the Delhi Secretariat on drafting the bill Arvind Kejriwal said, “If a girl is going out then she should feel secure. If she will feel secure then her parents will feel secure. We need to provide a system where women can roam freely around the city feeling safe and secure.”

The Chief Minister also shared his own experience while talking about women safety in the national capital. He said his family gets restless till the time his daughter returns from the IIT campus since the metro station is at a little distance away from his residence.

“If I as a Chief Minister is so concerned for the safety of my daughter then I can understand the feeling of a common man as well. We have taken several measures like installing CCTV cameras, which acts as a deterrent,” Kejriwal said.

“Three weeks ago, as a pilot project, we installed CCTV cameras in all the classes of three schools. (Deputy Chief Minister) Manish Sisodia went to take feedback and interacted with the students.

“They told him that they are very happy as teachers have stopped beating them. Students also shared that cases of theft from school bags have gone down,” Kejriwal said.
The Chief Minister highlighted that CCTV camera has a deterrent impact in public places too.  “Similarly, in buses we are installing CCTV cameras, which will bring an end to ‘road side Romeos’ but organsied gangs equipped with knife may not fear CCTV cameras but still to begin with there will be a decline in cases by 50-60 per cent,” he said.
