In a quest for the AAP government to fulfill its budget promise, members of Mahila Manch gathered outside Delhi Finance Minister Atishi's residence on Tuesday. The demonstrators demanded a Rs 1000 monthly honorarium for the city's women, as committed by the administration.

The protestors, assembled on Mathura Road, loudly voiced their demands. 'The AAP government announced Rs 1000 per month honorarium for women in its budget. It was not some poll promise. So, the government should now provide the money to the women,' said protester Safia Faheem.

Later, in a press conference, Minister Atishi alleged the protest was orchestrated by the BJP's women wing, showcasing their 'desperateness' to garner votes. 'It was the BJP's women wing who staged the protest. This shows the BJP's desperateness,' she said, asserting the ruling party's commitment to fulfilling the promise.
