New Delhi: Women’s safety tops the chart among the major issues confronting Delhi as it readies to vote for a new government Feb 7.

Most of the more than a dozen residents IANS spoke to said the safety and security of women in the capital would have to be addressed first by whoever wins the election.

Rising food prices, chaotic traffic and the need for uninterrupted water supply and electricity are the other problems people say they are bothered about.

Prashant Rao, an art teacher with a prominent school, summed up the majority mood: “Incidents of rape, loot and murders have become common. And women are soft targets in Delhi.”

He said with more and more women going to work, they frequently suffer sexual assaults. “I want the new government to provide a crime-free city.”
