Stating that the AAP government is committed to enhance women security in the city, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday said that no miscreant, chain snatcher and harasser will be able to escape the surveillance of the Delhi government’s CCTV cameras.
The Delhi Government’s flagship project for the installation of 1.4 lakh CCTV cameras was launched by the Deputy Chief Minister from his constituency, Patparganj.
The ambitious scheme aims to install 2,000 CCTV cameras in every assembly constituency of Delhi.
For several months, MLAs and Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) have been conducting surveys to determine the spots that need surveillance.
After a major part of the surveys have ended, the process of installation has begun.
Sisodia inaugurated the cameras installed in his constituency.
Congratulating the people of Patparganj and Delhi, he said, “A big dream of the people is being fulfilled today. Women security and law and order may not be under the Delhi government, but we are doing everything within our power to enhance security for women in the city. In the next 2-3 months, all 1.4 lakh cameras sanctioned will be installed. The tendering for another 1.5 lakh cameras has begun. This is in addition to cameras being installed in government schools for the security of children.”
“The cameras will come as a big relief for our daughters, sisters, mothers who feel afraid to step outside after dark for fear of harassment, assault. Delhi Police may not be with us, but rest assured, Delhi government’s cameras will keep an eye out for you in all corners of the city. No miscreant, chain snatcher, harasser will able to escape the surveillance of the CCTV cameras. All that women will have to do now is describe the attacker, and the video footage will find the culprit in no time,” Sisodia said.
