Mrs. Gandhi said that government is concerned at the growing crime rate against the woman. They have received several suggestions from people on how to improve women safety in the country.

Gandhi said:

“Why should we do that? Are women prisoners so they always have to move with these devices? How can we ensure availability, affordability and usage of these devices among rural women?”

She said that if phones would be equipped with an in-built panic button, women would feel safer in unwarranted and emergency situations.
