New Delhi, Sept 2: New Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has slammed BJP of being 'divided' and with no development agenda. But, has she forgotten that she is yet to address the agenda of crime rates in Delhi?
We understand when you say that women should be more "careful while dressing" or "they should not venture out at night" etc; but tell us madam, does that mean that the miscreants should be left at large?
Why is it so Sheilaji that whenever there is a crime in your state, you are either mum or just choose to shrug off your responsibility as "citizen's responsibility"?
Venture out once in the evening itself, still there are certain areas in New Delhi that are deserted and without street lights. The patrol cars are there in only a few areas and help comes only after a long wait when the crime has already happened. Is this what you mean by NCR?
The figures stated in a TOI report raises our concern even more, especially after the Nirbhaya gang rape case. The Delhi Human Development Report 2013, which was released by Vice-President M Hamid Ansari on Saturday states:
"There...appears to be an issue with regard to public safety for the citizens in the state".

There is a note of alarm when Ansari himself expresses concern over the government's role here. In the release function, he said that the government must restore people's faith in police and the justice delivery system.
A survey of 8,000 households across the city shows the level of dissatisfaction people have for the state administration. In the report, 38% of the respondents were apprehensive of personal safety, irrespective of the rich and the poor.
Populated by the city's rich, 3% of the respondents rated personal safety as poor or very poor. This was followed by South Delhi with 49.7%, Northwest District with 41.2%, Central District with 39.4% and West District with 38.6%.
Now, tell us now, Sheilaji, do you still qualify to question others?
