Jammu, July 19 (Scoop News)- Charging the Congress led UPA government of betraying the women by not granting reservation to them in decision making bodies, BJP Mahila Morcha National President Saroj Pandey declared that BJP is committed for political empowerment of the women. Addressing media persons at party headquarters at Jammu on Saturday along with Member of Parliament Darshana Jardosh, Morcha National Vice President Rashim Dhar Sood and J&K State President of Mahila Morcha Priya Sethi, she said that BJP has all along stood for providing reservation to women in parliament, state assemblies and other similar bodies. BJP has already granted reservation to women in its organizational setup and shall in the near future work towards reservation for them in elected bodies. It is unfortunate that the Congress was never in favour of such provisions for women and its assertions of standing for gender equality were only election gimmicks.
Replying to a question on BJP’s pre-poll popular slogan-“Achche Din Aayenge”, Saroj Pandey said that the people should not get mislead by propaganda of the Congress and its allies and instead should give some reasonable time to Narendra Modi to achieve the goal of “Achche Din”. She said that the ill effects of accumulated wrongs, mis-governance, corruption and scams of astronomical proportions committed during the past 60 years cannot be undone in just 6 or 60 days. The people should have faith in committed leadership of Narendra Modi and Achche Din Aayenge, will fructify.
Saroj Pandey, while advocating severe punishment for sexual offences, said that people’s faith in law of the land need to be strengthened. She said that unnecessary and avoidable delays in finalization of offences against women must stop. It is essential that the faith of the society and especially of the women folk must be restored in the rule of law and all the cases of sexual offences must be tried through fast track courts for early punishment to the culprits. She also assured that the neighbouring countries will change their decades old attitude towards India and our citizens will lead peaceful lives on the borders.
