With great power comes great responsibility. And our telly stars understand this. When we asked them what change they would enforce if they were made the Prime Minister for a day on the occasion of Republic Day, the top priority was making the country safe for women. Here’s what they have to say.
Karan Patel: In the light of increasing crimes against women, their security is of prime concern to me. So if I were to become the PM for a day, I would make sure security is prepped up for women in every nook and corner, and rapists will be castrated. I think this will send a strong message to men who think that they can get away after committing dastardly crimes against women.
Arjun Bijlani: If I became the Prime Minister, I would be keen on making India a green country. There should be gardens and parks for senior citizens and children. Trees are being chopped mercilessly and it is an alarming situation. Pollution is on the rise and before we realise, we will perish. We need to work towards making the country green and clean.
Daljeet Kaur: I will resign on the same day because you can’t do much to help your country in just a day.
However, if I was given little more time, I would change the laws to protect women. I would also pass a law to punish the perpetrator aggressively just so that they think a thousand times before committing a crime.
Rashami Desai: I would enforce strict traffic rules. I am appalled to see how people break rules every day and get away by paying bribes. I would also reduce the construction time of metro railways in all cities. So people have a safe and hassle-free experience. Safety of women is a huge concern for women.
I would levy heavy fines on people who throw garbage in public spaces. I don’t think we should compromise on cleanliness. I would also want India to be a corruption free nation. In fact, this will be my main agenda as a Prime Minister.
