Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Chief Swati Maliwal has entered the 10th day of her hunger strike.
“Today is the 10th day of my hunger strike. I have been requesting the Central government to make regulations in which the rape convicts should get the harshest punishment within 6 months. However, our government can neither hear the cries of the women nor can they see the agony of the women,” Maliwal said.
She further called the government ‘insensitive’, stating that her demands regarding women’s safety have not been fulfilled.
“My protest will continue till the government accepts my demands. The culprits should be punished. The Nirbhaya fund is still unused, it should be used to stop further incidents,” she said.
