Public should cooperate with police for making Delhi safe: CM

New Delhi, December 28:

After targeting police over the the gang-rape of paramedic student, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said she only wanted a "safe" city for all the citizens and that the society should cooperate with the force in this endeavour.

I just want to say that Delhi should be safe for all. Delhi is a very big city and I think there should be an
improvement in the training of police. The instrumentation required for immediate action should be there and the society should also cooperate," she said.

Dikshit said her government in cooperation with the Delhi Commission for Women will organise a Women Dignity March from Pragati Maidan to Rajghat on January 2.

The Chief Minister said the police should be "responsive" towards ensuring a "safe and secure" environment in the city.

The will take place on January 2 because not only the police should be aware and responsive, but the society should also have the unity to fight against this heinous crime," she said.

Escalating her confrontation with police, Dikshit had earlier this week shot off a letter to Home Minister
Sushilkumar Shinde seeking a high-level probe into "interference" by police officers during the recording of the
gangrape victim's statement.

Dikshit, who has been making a strong pitch of bringing the city police under the Delhi government from the Home
Ministry, has been critical of police's handling of protests against the gangrape, on Saturday and Sunday.

Ever since the public outrage over the December 16 gangrape in south Delhi, the Chief Minister has made it clear
that she cannot be held responsible for actions of police which is not under her government's control.

Police has made known its unhappiness over Dikshit passing on the buck and raking up a "non-issue".
