Looks like the upcoming Delhi election has woken up the grandma.


http://www.rediff.com/news/report/delhi-police-insensitive-lacks-manners-sheila-dikshit/20130113.htm

Admitting that the protests after the gangrape incident were a "wake up" call, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has taken on the Delhi [ Images ] Police for lack of faith the people have in it due to its "insensitive" approach.

She also suggested that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's [ Images ] address to the nation on the December 16 incident could have come a little earlier instead of a week after the "horrendous" crime.

Dikshit acknowledged that people "shy away" from helping others who are in distress because they feel that they will be "harassed" by the police, and asked the force to change its attitude and style of functioning. She felt that the force personnel should behave as "gentleman" police at the need of hour.
"It worries me. Yes. It worries me that police force is not as sensitive or responsive as it ought to be or well behaved as it ought to be... The systems need to be changed and judicial system needs to be changed and bureaucratic system needs to be changed but it has to be thought out. But please remember it is not going to happen tomorrow," she told Karan Thapar on Devil's
Advocate programme on CNN-IBN.

"Fault lies with police. I don't know. I have not minced my words (in saying) where the failure of this has come (from). In fact, I have not overtly but covertly criticised this. It is not my job to appoint a Police Commissioner or take him away. It is the job of the Home Ministry and I am sure they will do something," she said in reply to a question on who was at fault for the incident.

Dikshit said such mass protests were a challenge to politicians, bureaucracy, judiciary, police and to everybody, while "fully sympathising" with the anger and anguish of the people.

Calling the gangrape of the paramedical student as "horrendous", she said the Supreme Court's observation that women in Delhi are not safe was "telling" and says it all.

The Chief Minister rejected suggestions that the government did not act swiftly to control the situation, saying it had moved fast in setting up fast—track courts and appointing the Justice J S Verma Committee.

In this context, Dikshit said the Prime Minister addressed the nation, while Congress President Sonia Gandhi [ Images ] and Rahul Gandhi [ Images ] met the protesters.

She also noted that Singh and Gandhi received the body of the girl, who died in a Singapore hospital on December 29, at the Delhi airport.
To a question on whether Singh's address came late, she said, "Maybe it was one week too late. He should have perhaps done it earlier."
"...It (the government) moved...to get some other things like we got this 181 line or whatever it may be a small effort, that rang the bell for everyone to wake up," she said.

Dikshit also asked why only politicians were being targeted and why not any other organisations, in an apparent reference to the Delhi Police.
"Why are you putting it all on the politicians? Why not on many other things... The society, the way we are bringing up children, the way we are teaching children and the way our schools are running. Why is it only the politicians?" she asked.

Pitching for a change in the system, she said the police needs to have more faith in the people and if they have faith as a police force in the people, people will have faith in it.

Asked whether she addressed the issues with Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, she said she had met them and explained the issues and had even written letters to them.

Asked whether the Home Minister and the police understand the issues, she said: "Yes Yes. I hope they do. My understanding is amongst all these people, whether it is the Home Minister or the Police Commissioner or Lt Governor or Secretary, Home.

"They are not the people who are in touch daily with the people I am because I happen to be the Chief Minister."

Dikshit also said during her meeting with the Prime Minister, she told him that there should be an immediate change in the mode of police training if one wants to bring the confidence back into the policing system.

The Chief Minister also felt a lot of the VVIP security has to be removed, saying, "I can tell you about myself, I don't need that kind of security. Why?"

Asked whether she broached the topic with Shinde, she replied in the affirmative and quoted him as saying that there will be a review of VVIP security so that it can go to the people.

On the apex court's observation about safety of women in Delhi, she said, "Now you see the judiciary and no less than the Supreme Court had to come out with this comment. This comment is telling, I mean it says it all.

"Something I may not be able to say or somebody else may be saying and the Supreme Court is saying. This is about the third or fourth time that they have said something like this."

The Chief Minister said no one has any "magic wand" to bring back safety and that it will take time. She also said the family values where the boy is treated as a "king and the girl as a curse" needs to be changed first.

Dikshit also said her government would launch an awareness campaign called 'Aawaz uthao, chintan karo' (Raise your voice and introspect).

What is the point in simply providing an article? What about your opinion? Do you agree with Sheila or you have a different take?

This is a most ridiculous argument from monstrous Sheila. Karan Thapar is a “dalal”, a disgraced broker of Kangress who aggressively interviews non-kangress politicians while treat Kangress guys with kid gloves.

The politicians in India wield immense power, officially as well as unofficially. Even CBI and courts also defer to them. (Recall Manu Singhvi raping a lady high court judge in his chambers by promising her promotion) . they are the people responsible for recruitment of police and their training. Now Sheila is blaming police. How more ridiculous she can be? But English media and politicians know that in India those who know English are pseudo secular and they cannot think. so they would accept any garbage that isdished oyt to them.

NM /KM , in your fascination to beat congress and hoist vhp flag, haven'nt you lost a nerve of logic ? Shiela and some kejriwals are the only politician till now taking on with delhi police , while your beloved BJP clan is watching hands on hips (I wish I could say it in hindi!). Still you have a teeth to grind against her. I find it strange ! we talk pages on laxity by law and politicians , but when any of them try to take a stand we suspect election gimmick. Pure emotions !

Lol! This guy is internet troll. I guess he writes to have a last word. Trolls work in this fashion only. Trolls work on assumption which, to an extent is correct that most people do not have time or patience to read the past discussion and hence any non sense they write would be fine. Keep going. I find Puttoo, Delhite and your posts very entertaining. Lol!
