Shri Modi has always believed that women can play a transformational role in strengthening and contributing towards the society. During Mann Ki Baat, the PM said, “Be it the field of sports or space science, the women of our country lag behind none. They are moving ahead shoulder to shoulder and are bringing glory to the nation with their commendable achievements.” Shri Modi noted that ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ movement was moving ahead with rapid strides. He said, “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao is no longer just a government programme. It has now become a campaign of public education. It has become a people’s movement.” The PM said as the world moved ahead to celebrate 8th March as women’s day, there was only one sentiment-
With Strength, with Vitality, the Indian woman comes to the fore;
Rightfully deserves equality – neither less, nor more.
