Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ignores the protest of Anganwadi workers/helpers, ad hoc teachers, nurses, doctors etc. without bothering to initiate a dialogue to solve their problems: DPCC President Anil Kumar.
New Delhi: Delhi Pradesh on Tuesday said that on Women’s Day today, the women of Delhi feel the most harassed, alienated and neglected, as the Arvind Kejriwal Government’s policies and programmes have all been anti-women. He said that the main victims of the liberalized Liquor Policy were women, as they suffered the brunt of liquor addiction among family members, including fathers, brothers, husbands and sons.
Delhi Congress President Anil Kumar said that Chief Minister came to power by cashing in on the Nirbhaya case, but women have suffered the worst fate under the AAP Government, as not only sexual assaults and crimes against women had gone up for the past eight years, but women also suffered untold misery on account of the Covid-19 pandemic devastation and price rise. He said that the Arvind Kejriwal Government provided no financial incentives to housewives to surmount the crisis created by the Covid-19 deaths and destruction.
He said that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who promised Rs 1000 to every woman in States which went to Assembly polls recently, has ironically stopped widow pension in Delhi, besides creating other difficulties for women like denying them ration cards, and flats under the in-situ scheme for the resettlement of those living in JJ clusters.
He said that Chief, who made many hollow promises for the uplift of women, has not bothered to give representation to a woman legislator in his Cabinet, and as a result, women rarely get justice and fair deal from the male-dominated Government in Delhi. He said that though the Election Commission has reserved 50 per cent seats for women in the upcoming MCD elections, Delhi Congress will consider fielding women from even general category, if such candidates enjoy local support.
