They offered generous sympathies when India spoke up to literally beg for security -- but are these lawmakers, who made a show of condemning the incident in Parliament, doing enough to secure the safety of the Aam Aadmi? Because tonight, each VVIP enjoys the security of 3 policemen -- when 716 citizens have just one policemen to rely on. Especially when these VVIPs expect the Delhi police to overstretch its force to look after their security alone. In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Meenakshi Lekhi, Mahila Morcha National Vice-President, BJP; Shaina NC, Member BJP; Khusboo, Leader, DMK; Binalaxmi Nepram, Social Activist; Dr Indu Agnihotri, Secy & Dir, Womens Development Studies; Saba Naqvi, Political Editor, Outlook; Sehba Faruqui, Gen Secy, AIDWA (Delhi Wing); Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, CMD, Biocon Ltd; Rajesh Kalra, Chief Editor, Times Internet Ltd and Radhika Ganesh (Viewer), Publicist, debates whether should some of Delhi's VIPs be forced to cut down security and hand it over to protect the people instead.
