Jul 12, 2019 08:12 PM IST India India

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has hit out at what he calls forces that have been trying to scuttle the government's CCTV project from the beginning. This comes after the Supreme Court refused to pass an interim stay on the installation of 1.5 Lakh CCTV cameras in Delhi Government schools, giving a nod to move ahead with the project. The Delhi CM had earlier dismissed concerns that the CCTV cameras would compromise privacy of the school children, saying the initiative would help improve the results of Delhi government schools and boost security. Kejriwal also said over 1,000 Delhi government schools would be equipped with CCTV cameras by November this year.
