New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will hold the second edition of its Delhi Dialogues series in the national capital on Wednesday, focusing on women’s issues on what is also the party’s second founding day.

Actor and AAP leader Gul Panag, first woman DGP of the country Kandhan Chaudhary and former vice-president of Axis Bank Manisha Lath Gupta will address the audience in the women dialogue.

“We have held more than 300 meetings and the most significant issue that has risen is the safety of women," said Atishi Marlena, a senior party leader closely associated with the initiative. Other key issues raised include safety in public transport, especially last-mile connectivity, and absence of sanitation facilities.

The party also plans to address the easy availability of liquor in the city. “There is easy access and (the shops) are located on street corners leading to concerns," Marlena said. Policy changes in this regard will be part of the dialogue.

The dialogue may also touch upon installing closed circuit television cameras in the city. The party had proposed the idea during its 49-day stint in power. The introduction of marshals in public transport to reduce cases of teasing and harassment of women is also under consideration.

The party also plans to build toilets around the city and is considering environmentally-friendly options such as bio-digester toilets.
