Congratulation Ms S Gamlin. WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT YOU PLEASE FOCUS ON ISSUES LIKE THE EXTRA ORDINARY NUMBER OF RAPES TAKING PLACE IN NCR. The Union Home Ministry in one year service , has failed to STOP this Horrible CRIME AGAINST Ordinary Citizen of NCR. WE hope and pray you give a "NEW DELHI" FREE of Rape CRIMES in less than 6 months. THE BJP Home Ministry has let us down several time with the multiple rape incidence. WE hope to tell the Home Ministry that RAPE IS ACTUALLY A CRIME and the Basic Right to be secure for every citizen of Delhi , Security is lacking in NCR which happens to be the Nation Capital. Ms S GAMLIN GIVE US A SECURE DELHI. JAI BHARAT
