New Delhi: A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal came all guns blazing on Congress president Sonia Gandhi demanding her arrest in the AgustaWestland case, his predecessor Sheila Dikshit on Sunday called on the AAP chief to first focus his attention on other important issues, including safety of women, in the national capital.
“I would request Arvind Kejriwal that women are feeling unsafe and are facing insecurities much more during the AAP government’s time in power. He needs to give importance to women safety. Arvind Kejriwal, who raised questions during our time, must take action now,” Dikshit said.
Asserting that Kejriwal was one to never introspect, she added that the Chief Minister must first rectify his own erring way and the flaws in his government before making unwarranted comments on every single thing.
“If women don’t feel secure in the country’s capital, then where will they? Atrocities against women should not be tolerated. I appeal upon Kejriwal Government to take care of such issues, and take steps for women security,” she added.
Dikshit’s comments come in the wake of an Ola cab driver being apprehended today after a Belgian national alleged molestation at his hands.
The cab service provider issued a statement, saying they have terminated the driver with ‘immediate effect’.
Earlier during his attack on the Gandhi family, Kejriwal had also taken a shot at Dikshit and said that he had registered three FIRs against her during his 49-day government in the national capital as he had solid evidence of her involvement in corruption cases.
“When we came to power during our 49-day regime, we filed three FIRs against Sheila Dikshit regime, but in two years they haven’t filed a single FIR. The moment I resigned, the cases went to cold storage. After a year, when we again came to power and wanted to get the files opened, Modi was baffled. He sent his paramilitary force to take over the ACB. I challenge him to give the ACB to us and we will tell you how interrogation is conducted and how the corrupt people are sent to jail,” Kejriwal said.
