Setting up a Jan Lokpal, or ombudsman, is a priority for Delhi's new Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung said Monday.

Addressing the assembly, he said he expected the government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to fulfil all its promises.

"People have voted for change (in Delhi)," he said, adding that he expected the government to fulfil all the promises it made to the people.

He said setting up a Jan Lokpal was a priority in order to bridge the gap between the government and the people.

Jung said more government schools would be opened in the city and special attention would be paid to women's security.

"It is sad that half the population does not feel safe going to public places," he said. 

Kejriwal took oath on December 28 at the head of a minority AAP government.
