C. M. Arvind Kejriwal
Women are still unsafe today, we still have a lot of work to do. Nothing will happen until a mass movement is created regarding women’s safety. Society’s greatest task is to provide women with safety. Women are only safe when every person in the society does not consider it their responsibility. Marshals were installed in the buses for the safety of women. Women can now travel on buses without any fear. CCTV cameras are installed on every corner of Delhi.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said these things in a program organized by Delhi Women’s Commission on the occasion of International Women’s Day. An award ceremony was organized on behalf of the Commission at the India Habitat Center on Saturday to mark International Women’s Day. On this occasion, the Chief Minister honored 90 men and women who have dedicated themselves to the cause of women.
