Earlier BJP State President Shamsher Singh Manhas, while addressing a meeting of the newly constituted State team of Mahila Morcha said that the party is committed for women empowerment. He said the women constitute about 50 per cent of the population and play a very important role through various stages of their life. In these days of advance education, it is witnessed that the women have registered their presence in almost all the fields and even in many cases achieved very high and respectable positions at national and international levels.

He asked the Mahila Morcha leaders present in the meeting to gather details of these schemes from the concerned departments and help the poor and needy women of their respective areas in getting them the benefits of these schemes. He also stressed on providing equal opportunities to the female children in the families so that they are in a position to prove their ability and competence in their lives.
