While there is still a fortnight to go before the February 7 elections, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal seems to have already made plans for the next five years, with a special focus on women’s safety.

Even as supporters addressed him as the “brother of all Daminis”, Kejriwal, during a jan sabha in Palam, promised that Delhi would not see anymore “Trilokpuri or Damini” incidents. “We have already planned what we will do for the women of Delhi. The AAP government will install at least 15 lakh CCTV cameras all over the capital. There will be a security guard in every bus and we will launch a Security Button App, which when pressed, will alert police who will reach the spot in five minutes,” Kejriwal said.

He also took a shot at the BJP, claiming that it was an “anti-women” party. “Some ministers say do not wear jeans, some say women should have four children. Are they here only to produce children,” he said.

Taking a dig at the Modi government and the numerous promises it made for vikas (development) in the country, Kejriwal said, “BJP has not worked towards development. All they have done is religious conversions.”

Kejriwal also said the BJP should handover to the AAP the responsibility of curbing corruption. “During the BJP’s regime, the rate of corruption has doubled, whereas we removed corruption in 49 days. I want to make an appeal to the ‘Modi sarkar’: if you cannot do it, please tell us, we will do it for you,” he said.

Kejriwal was campaigning for the Palam candidate Bhavna Gaur, who had featured in a sting operation conducted on her.

“The video was doctored and it was proved. I have been given a ticket and it is a sign that the party and Kejriwal have faith in me,” Gaur said.
