Anil Baijal assures a better, safer Delhi

New Delhi [India], Dec. 31 : Expressing confidence, Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Saturday assured a better Delhi to live in with major problems such as women's safety, law and order to be overcome.

"Delhi is a big city. There are problems of pollution, population, congestion, law and order, security, women safety. We all know what the problems are. We are going to make efforts to solve these problems," Baijal told media here. Expressing his gratitude to Prime Minister Modi and President Mukherjee, Baijal said he would work in coordination with all to achieve the best for Delhi.

"I am grateful to the President and Prime Minister for selecting me for the post. We will try in coordination with the government to do the best for Delhi," he said. Baijal refrained himself from commenting on the rift that the Delhi government and former lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung shared, and said whatever happens, it will come in front of all sooner or later.

"I would not like to comment on that. We will sit and talk and then let you know. You will then come to know if the relations are still constrained or not," he said. Baijal, earlier in the day, took oath as the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi at Raj Niwas. The oath was administered by Delhi High Court's Chief Justice G. Rohini. President Pranab Mukherjee earlier on December 28 accepted Najeeb Jung's resignation and approved Baijal's name as the next Lieutenant Governor of the National Capital Territory.
