“I have no solution”: Former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit’s insensitive remark on women safety shocks all

Instead of responding to a question, she retaliated by asking the journalist, "I would like your solutions."

Former Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit shocked all with her “I have no solution” remark in context to ‘women safety’ in Delhi. Ironically, Dikshit was the Chief Minister of Delhi between 1998-2013. Being a woman and the longest serving Chief Minister, her statement is not only shameful and ludicrous but appalling as well.

Dikshit, in conversation with Mirror Now, is seen to conveniently wash her hands off women safety. According to her, the Delhi government has no role to play in ensuring the safety of women as far as the police are concerned.

In the video clip, which was shared by Mirror Now on its Twitter handle, Dikshit went on to downplay the Nirbhaya case that had united the entire nation in outrage over the heinous crime. She said this case was “blown out of proportion by the media” while other cases go unnoticed. She dumped the responsibility of ensuring women safety on Delhi Police, who she said falls under the ambit of the Government of India. Instead of responding to a question, she retaliated by asking the journalist, “I would like your solutions.”

The journalist suggested that streets should be lit, CCTV cameras should be installed and bus drivers should be properly licensed and identified. However, Dikshit was quick to shrug off the responsibility of the elected representatives of the state government. She chose to shift the blame on the police and the central government.

The journalist had to remind her that the Congress-led UPA government was in power when Nirbhaya case happened.

Through the interview, Dikshit reiterated the fact that “Solutions are with the Government of India and the Parliament of India.” She refused to offer any solutions about an issue that is under her purview. As the Congress candidate from Noth East Delhi, she said if elected to the Parliament, she would “speak about it, she would mention it because she would be representing Delhi.”

The senior Congress leader clearly appears to have a made up her mind of evading answers pertaining to the safety of women in Delhi, where she ruled for a decade and a half.

Her apparent views on offering solutions to women in the state have drawn flak. Here are some of the responses that she received.

This is not the first time when Dikshit has passed a controversial remark. We had earlier reported how her comparison between Former PM Manmohan Singh and PM Narendra Modi in dealing with terrorism had irked her partymen.
