A woman’s stride in leading the national transformation has been a defining feature under Modi Government. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the focus has shifted from women development to women-led-development.
Prime Minister’s developmental has found unequivocal support from women. Nari Shakti is now the most critical perquisite to economic growth.
Prime Minister Modi has elicited warmth and excitement among women, even on foreign shores. Remember, when Prime Minister got a rousing welcome on visiting an all-women Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) training center and interacted with Saudi women IT professionals?
Women being the biggest beneficiaries of Modi government’s flagship scheme like Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) and Pradhan MantriUjjwala Scheme, have experienced freedom from financial dependency and day to day drudgery. The love and support they have shown, in return, has been unprecedented.
With Jan Dhan Yojana, the percentage of banked women has increased to a record 61 per cent, giving a major fillip to female financial literacy and empowerment in India.
As Prime Minister Modi says, “We cannot achieve success if 50 per cent of our population being women are locked at home.” A major thrust area of the Modi government has been to nurture women entrepreneurs through financial support, skilling and training.
From women sarpanchs to legislators, the role of women in public service is being encouraged like never before. PM Modi has acknowledged that the outcomes of social welfare programs tend to multiply with women participation owing to their exceptional ability to care and provide not just for their immediate family but for society at large.
Prime Minister Modi has reached out to women to garner their full participation in realizing the New India Vision. He envisions women leading from the front, be it the Swachh BharatAbhiyan or transforming India’s power sector through solar power generation.
The need to save the Girl Child and Promote Girl Education has been articulated by the Prime Minister Modi with immense urgency and sensitivity. With constant efforts under BetiBachaoBetiPadhao scheme, Haryana has achieved a sex ratio of 950, from a low of 840, in just two years.
As India catapults to a major global economic power, the need for women’s participation in the nation’s growth story is becoming critical day by day. No wonder that the women of India are asserting themselves like never before and are placing their trust in the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The progress of humanity is incomplete without the empowerment of women.”
