With less than a year to go for the Assembly polls, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday kick-started AAP’s government CCTV cameras installation project in the national capital.
The leader asserted that three lakh CCTV cameras will be installed across the national capital in 50 days.
“As the crime is increasing day by day, the role of the Delhi government can be to install CCTV cameras at every street. RWA and police will get a direct feed of these cameras. The project of installing three lakh CCTV cameras has started,” Sisodia told reporters here after installing a camera in East Vinod Nagar, which falls under his Assembly constituency of Patparganj.
“I have started the project of installing 2,000 cameras in Patparganj Assembly constituency. These are high-end cameras and its feeds will be available to SHO, RWA and command centre,” he said.
When asked to comment on E Sreedharan who objected to Aam Aadmi Party’s proposed free travel scheme for women in Delhi Metro, he said, “There was a time when people never thought of metro. E Sreedharan was a superb engineer. He visualised it and now it is there. Today people are saying it is not possible for the government. It is possible.”
Earlier, Sreedharan, popularly known as ‘Metro Man’ wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not agreeing to the proposal saying that it would set alarming precedence to all other metros in the country.
