Last 9 years provided ‘Suvidha, Suraksha, Samman’ to women: Dr Jitendra


SUMBHAL: Last 9 years under Prime Minister Narendra Modi provided “Suvidha, Suraksha, Samman ” to women. Thoughtfully planned schemes like Ujjwala for Gas connections, Swachhta for female toilets and Jal Jeevan for household tap water not only provided ease of living to women but also gave them a sense of self-confidence with self-esteem.
This was stated here by Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh while addressing a congregation of Modi scheme beneficiaries, majority of whom comprised women
The Minister said, there has been a paradigm shift in Public Service Delivery and the implementation of Government schemes in the last 9 years.
“Be it DBT, or provision of basic facilities like electricity, water, toilets to poor people, all these have brought a revolution at the grassroots level,” he said.
Dr Jitendra said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has put Nari Shakti at the forefront of India’s development journey. Mission Shakti comprises two sub-schemes ‘Sambal’ and ‘Samarthya’ for the safety, security and empowerment of women. The impact of this approach has been evident in the outcomes, such as an improved sex ratio at birth which is now for the first time 1020 women per 1000 men, a rise in institutional deliveries, declining infant mortality, and a lower maternal mortality rate.
With a promise to remove drudgery from the daily life of Women, Dr Jitendra said the increased usage of LPG cylinders under the Ujjwala Yojana has saved crores of women from chronic respiratory disorders through smoke-free kitchens. With the success of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, crores of women are now able to access toilets in their homes without any fear of safety or violation of dignity.
In the 9 years of the Modi government, women have grown from strength to strength. Their success can be seen in the significant increase in the numbers of female police personnel, in the laurels won by sportswomen for the country and in the enrolment of women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths.
