Our country can't be the most unsafe country in the world!
Jun 27, 2018 — I hope you’ve already read about it--according to a Thomson Reuters Foundation report, our country is the most unsafe country for women in the world. I know most of us are worried about the state of women safety in India and I'm taking steps to do something about it proactively. I am so thankful that you have supported me all along in this fight for our safety and the safety of our loved ones.
Together, we are now almost 31,000 supporters on my petition to #LightUpDelhi, citizens of India who want safer streets in Delhi. In recognition of the public needs, the petition was covered by The Hindu, a leading English daily, earlier this month (http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Delhi/petition-for-lit-up-areas-near-metro-stations/article24083142.ece ).
In the coming days, I am going to file an RTI questioning the government for the promises they made to light up the streets of Delhi. I am also preparing a ground reality report of some of our most vulnerable metro stations to submit to the government. With your support, we are sure to be successful in changing ground realities for millions of people who survive with the dangers of darkness on our streets.
Please share the petition and tweet to @SatyendarJain, Minister for Urban Development and Public Works, Govt. of Delhi and let your voices be heard.
Let’s make India’s capital a safer place!
