Commenting on the ordinance to check rape and sexual assault, following the Verma committee report, Siasat, in an editorial on February 3, writes: "By promulgating the ordinance, the government has tried to send the message that it is serious about the security of its citizens, particularly women. Many organisations... have drawn attention to the causes of the present problems of security of women. But action... has to be initiated by individuals...". Delhi-based Nai Duniya, edited by former Samajwadi Party leader, Shahid Siddiqui, says: "What is of utmost significance is that there is great need for framing laws, but more important is an effort to awaken a collective conscience that... does not rely on legal constraints alone."
A front page anchor in Sahafat (February 4) says: "Riding to power on a bicycle, Akhilesh Yadav, may be ruling in the most populous state... But on the social networking site Facebook, his wife and MP Dimple Yadav has left him behind. Dimple's page has been 'liked' by about 20,000 netizens whereas the technology savvy 'socialist' CM lags behind with only 8,000 admirers."
