New Delhi: Khadija Faroqui, head of the women’s helpline (181), protested outside Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday, alleging that she was being harassed by officials in the women and child development ministry. She had written a letter to chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday about this, but claimed no reply came.
Faroqui alleged that harassment started a year ago when she raised the issue of financial irregularities in her department with the director. “There are several problems with the way the department is functioning. There is always a 2-3 month delay in the payment of salaries, the servers are about to crash and when there were cases which needed to be followed, the government did not respond appropriately,” she said.
“We are tired of begging for cooperation. I have been writing to the government about the matter for long but have received no reply,” Faroqui said.
