Nirbhaya case 'blown out of proportion': Sheila Dikshit

NEW DELHI: Former Chief Minister And Candidate Northeast Delhi Of Congress Sheila Dikshit Walked In A Controversy On Saturday By Suggesting That In 2012 It Was" Blown Out Of Proportion" ; Through The Media In An Interview With Mirror Now.

After Noticing That The Government Of Delhi Had No Role To Play In Securing The City For Women And Emphasized That It Said So Far As It Concerned The Role Of The Police, It Agreed With The Interviewer That It" Blown Out" Wax Ratio &.earlierintheinterview,shehadcalledfor'uniformity'.inrespondingtosuchcrimes,sayingonebecamea"politicalscandal"; While Others Were Ignored.

Sheila Repeatedly Pointed Out That The Police Fall Under The Center And That The Government Of Delhi Could Not Post Anyone. She Clarified That She Did Not Want To Blame Anyone, But Just Be On The" Situation." She Compared The Limited Jurisdiction Of The Government In Delhi With Regard To The Safety Of Women Against The Limited Role Of Media That Can Write About These Crimes, But Cannot Take Action That The Police Should Carry Out.

Asked That She Be A Candidate In The Field Of Women's Security, Sheila Said," I Have No Solutions For Things That Do Not Fall Under My Authority. I Will Discuss This Here In Parliament Because Delhi Will Represent."

There Was Outrage About The Remarks. Delhi Commission For Women Chairperson Described It As A Shameful Interview In A Tweet, Observing That &nowonderdelhiistherapecapitaloftheworld". Activist Harish Iyer Said He Was Shocked By The Comments. Party Affiliation Aside, In The Spirit Of Democracy And Free Voice That Congress Espouses, I Strongly Condemn Sheila Dikshit. I Regret That Rape Survivors Have To Hear This, He Tweeted. Another Activist, Seema Joshi, Said That People Should Choose Parliamentarians Who Understand, Empathize With Gravity Or Problem And Have Some Seriousness And Solution For Issues Like Women ' S Safety.

This Is Not The First Time Sheila Touched This Topic. In Her Autobiography, ' Citizen Delhi: My Times, My Life ', She Had Written:" Even When I Silently Extended My Hand To Nirbhaya ' S Family To Extend Every Possible Help To Me, My Declaration That Law And Order Fell Not Within Our Government The Jurisdiction Was Considered An Insensitive Attempt To Pass The Bill She Blamed The Center In Fact - The UPA Government Led By Congress - Because Of Its" Unresponsive Attitude." Immediately After It Incident As" Deliberate As It Shift Focus Entirely On The Government Of Delhi" .

She Wrote That Because The Center Did Not Want To Let The Debt Fall, It Immediately Decided To Take It Upon Itself. Someone Had To Take The Blame.

On December 16, 2012, Nirbhaya, A 23-year-old Paramedic Student, Was Beaten, Tortured, And Pushed By Six Men In A Moving Bus In South Delhi. Her Body Was Brutalized And Thrown Out Of The Bus Just Like Her Male Companion. It Led To Widespread Public Outrage And The Establishment Of The Verma Commission Of Justice To Change.
