As they shared their experiences, Parita expressed her admiration for Ahmedabad’s development. “Yes, development is good in Gujarat, we gather at night because Ahmedabad’s nightlife is better than other cities. Here, we feel safe, we can sit the whole night enjoying the sweet delicacies Gujarat has to offer, and the weather is also pleasant at night.” Nisha, a compliance officer, said in agreement “The city as well as the city is safe for women, we are happy with the development.”

Nikhil, one of the males in the family, said, “Here, the BJP will form the government again, citing women’s safety as one of the reasons. Women’s safety is good; if you come here, you will find that even at 2 am, ladies wander around, no male has a problem with women being out even at 2 am.” The elderly member of the family, his mother and other female members, agreed on the issue of women’s safety in the state.
