New Delhi: Delhi school students belonging to both private and government schools have taken a pledge to protect the dignity of the women of their country. Close to 22 lakh students were administered the oath that they will respect women and not violate their dignity.
A tweet from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “Today a campaign for women security was started along with 22 lakh students. CCTV cameras and street lights are also being installed. But the ideology of the society needs to be changed. We have to make Delhi a place where women are not scared of stepping out at night,”
“Boys took oath that they will respect women and will not misbehave with them. Girls will administer the same oath to their brothers at home and warn them of breaking ties if they will not treat women well,” he added.
