New Delhi, Feb 13 - In the wake of sexual harassment of a Delhi University student in a bus, Swaraj India on Tuesday accused the AAP government of failure to ensure security for women in three years of its rule in Delhi.

The sexual harassment of a female student in a cluster bus shows that the Delhi government's promise of ensuring women's safety by deploying marshals and equipping buses with closed-circuit televisions has fallen flat, Swaraj India spokesperson and its Delhi unit President Anupam said.

The party's student wing 'Youth for Swaraj' plan to meet Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and Delhi University Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi to demand steps to ensure women's safety, he said.

Anupam said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) once played a key role in the Nirbhaya movement and had been in power since 2015 and yet cases of molestation and sexual harassment are on the rise.

Even Delhi Transport Corporation buses and cluster buses are not secure in the national capital, which is a matter of great shame.

What happened to the promise of women's security force? Where are CCTVs supposed to be installed in buses? Where are marshals inside DTC buses? what has the Delhi government done to improve the last-mile connectivity? he asked, demanding the culprit in the case be arrested at the earliest.
