Swati Maliwal, the chief of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), has hit back at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for accusing her of making a U-turn under pressure from goons. The controversy arose after Maliwal criticized the Delhi government for its handling of the case of a 12-year-old girl who was allegedly sexually assaulted and murdered in the city.

Maliwal had earlier demanded the resignation of the Delhi Police Commissioner and questioned the AAP government’s commitment to women’s safety. However, the AAP accused her of changing her stance after facing pressure from a group of people who identified themselves as AAP supporters.

In response, Maliwal defended herself by stating that she has always been committed to fighting for women’s rights and that her statements were not influenced by any external pressure. She also emphasized that it is important to hold the government accountable for its actions, especially when it comes to ensuring the safety of women in the city.

This exchange of words between Maliwal and the AAP highlights the ongoing tensions between the DCW and the Delhi government. The DCW has been critical of the government’s response to cases of violence against women, while the AAP has often accused the commission of being politically motivated.

The issue of women’s safety has been a major concern in Delhi, which has gained notoriety for being one of the most unsafe cities for women in India. Incidents of sexual assault and violence against women are alarmingly high, and there have been numerous cases that have sparked public outrage and calls for stricter measures to protect women.

As the head of the DCW, Maliwal has been vocal in demanding justice for victims of such crimes and has been pushing for policy reforms to improve the safety and security of women in the city. Her confrontations with the AAP government reflect the challenges faced in addressing these issues and the complexities of navigating the political landscape while advocating for women’s rights.

The exchange also underscores the importance of maintaining an independent and impartial stance in addressing issues related to women’s safety, without being swayed by political pressures or affiliations. It serves as a reminder of the need for a united front in the fight against gender-based violence and the importance of holding authorities accountable for their responsibilities in ensuring the safety and well-being of women in society.
