"government will soon call a meeting of all RWA (resident welfare associations and market associations in to discuss and finalise modalities of installing CCTV cameras across Delhi," Kejriwal tweeted.

In a tweet yesterday, the claimed that mandatory provisions for installation of CCTV cameras would increase bribery.

"What will police see before giving CCTV license? On what basis will police give license? It will only increase bribery. Its a huge blow to women safety becoz all existing cameras in Del will have to be removed till they obtain license n all new CCTVs will have to wait for license (sic)," Kejriwal had said.

A six-member committee, constituted by Baijal in May, is likely to regulate the installation of CCTV cameras in private and government buildings in the national capital, a source had said.
