Eyebrows raised as no woman in Delhi's new cabinet

New Delhi: Congress leader Alka Lamba on Sunday tweeted that Delhi's women department has been assigned to a male instead of a female in the newly constituted Delhi Assembly. She urged women of Delhi to demand permanent jobs in Delhi Transport Corporation and not just a free DTC bus ride.

"#Delhi Government's #Women's Ministry is also given to a #Man Minister. My best wishes to the women of Delhi, stay safe, stay healthy. Once again women stand at the doors of men to get their rights. No more free ticket on the bus... ask for confirmed job in DTC," Lamba tweeted in Hindi.

As Kejriwal 3.0 cabinet swore in for the third term at Delhi's Ramlila ground, everyone wondered why there was no woman in the new cabinet despite the fact that the party has no dearth of deserving candidates.

Kejriwal decided to repeat the entire cabinet of 2015. As in his previous tenure, this time too no woman was sworn in as minister.
