Delhi metro
New Delhi, Jan 20: A group of women journalists protested against the Delhi metro authorities on Sunday for a nude poster of a woman at the Rajiv Chowk station.

The poster spots the woman covered with just a duct tape, which is the main cause of the unrest.

According to a report by IBNLive, one of the protestors said,"What does this advertisement mean? That women are on sale?". The journalists further added that the metro authorities have taken no action, despite receiving multiple complaints."

The authorities, however, could not be reached for comments.

Somnath Bharti won't allow 'naked dance'

In a bid to stop the 'naked dance' (as he terms) of sex racket and prostitution by African nationals, the Delhi law minister went a step ahead in violating the decorum in the ministry. First it was intrusion without warrant, and now it is the use of abusive languages.

Justifying his vigilante ruckus last Thursday, Bharti said,""If there are good people, irrespective of their nationality, who are here to study or work, they will be welcomed. However, if they dance naked, sell drugs and run sex rackets, then there won't be anyone worse than us. These people will have to leave."

While this is being highly criticized by political parties and the foreign nationals, the residents of the area claim that they have been conducting a sting operation termed "black beauty" to nab any anti-social activities.

In the wake of this, Bharti said,"We saw clients, pimps, customers, drugs and prostitution. I've no problem with Nigerians or Ugandans. However, if foreigners think it is fine to ignore our laws, it's not done. Top police officials, businessmen and political leaders are involved in this nexus of drug and sex trade."

While social activists applaud the Delhi Police for protecting the women in the vigilante, Bharti condemned them using harsh words.  He said,"The police system of the city stinks. Delhi police might not be under us but if they do something against people who are innocent, we won't spare them. If they think that by using this case based on false statements of criminals they will put me in jail, I don't know how people will react."
