Amid outrage for brutal gang rape in Saki Naka, Shiv Sena states ‘Mumbai safest city for women in the world’
After the rape and murder case of a 32year old women Saki Naka in the State of Maharashtra, the opposition with different parties have started attacking the ruling party in the state, Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. The Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray held an urgent meeting with senior officials from the Maharashtra Police Force and home department in South Mumbai.  
In the meeting, Chief Minister Thackeray directed the police personnel to dig out the records of people who are coming from other states in a way for a different type of style of working and revising the working into the fast track so that there is the speedy implementation of punishment and registration of all the complaints filed by women. 
The meeting by the Chief Minister included all the police officers from the force, from all cities and district heads, Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil, Chief Secretary Sitaram Kunte with additional Chief Secretary Manu Kumar Srivastava. The points raised by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray included shelters for women who are homeless living in pavements, railway stations, or bus stations and has also urged the central government for a helping hand. He further stated that the state government will refurbish the working style of the judicial system for a speedy recovery.  
“Deployment of Police officers for all the pending cases in the fast-track court will be done for speedy implementation of rules and regulations. The police will have to be more vigilant alert so that to maintain its reputation,” stated the Home minister Walse Patil. Further, the Home Minister also directed the police officers to register each case that has been filed by the women and prioritize them for further investigations. 
Further without mentioning anyone the Chief Minister stated that everyone should be very careful while reacting in cases like these and beforehand should think about the outcome of those reactions. In the response to the attack made by the opposition, the Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece Saamana stated that the rape case that occurred in the city of Mumbai was not like Hathras where the Uttar Pradesh Government was not accepting it as a rape. The Sena mouthpiece further stated that Mumbai is the safest city in the world for women. This statement from Sena’s mouthpiece came amid the wrath against the brutal crime similar to that of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case.
