Early Times Report
JAMMU, June 27: Accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party Govt at the Centre as well as its proxy Govt in J&K of being a 'Jumla Govt', Rattan Lal Gupta, Provincial President National Conference has said that BJP has done nothing at all to empower women in Jammu and Kashmir. Taking a dig at the Centre, he asserted that the BJP Govt has disempowered the people of this Union Territory of even the basic right to elect its representatives to the Legislature, be it the J&K Assembly or even deprived it of participation in the coming election of the President of India. In such a situation the women folk can expect nothing positive for their empowerment from the incumbent BJP government.
The NC Provincial President stated this while addressing a meeting of National Conference Women Wing, Jammu Province held at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhawan Jammu under the chairmanship of Satwant Dogra, President Women Wing National Conference, Jammu Province here today.
Chief Guest of the meeting, Rattan Lal Gupta said that the National Conference during its regime in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir headed by Dr Farooq Abdullah as well as later by Omar Abdullah left no stone unturned in fully empowering the women of this region.
The senior NC leader said that it is known to one and all that National Conference has during every phase of its rule worked relentlessly for providing equal rights to each and every section of the society. He said that it would not be wrong to state that National Conference has literally as well as practically been the champion in ensuring that women are aware of their due rights and enjoy all such rights. He mentioned that it was NC Government which had provided 50 per cent reservation to women of J&K in medical colleges of the erstwhile state.
Gupta further said that National Conference is the only panacea of the people of this region especially in terms of empowering women. He asked the people in general and women in particular to vote for NC in the J&K Assembly elections whenever these are held. He assured that his party will leave no stone unturned in empowering the women with all their genuine rights.
Earlier while chairing the meeting, Satwant Dogra raised several issues especially related to women folk. She lamented that the women have been the worst sufferers during the ongoing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rule at the Centre and proxy rule in Jammu and Kashmir. She alleged that during the so called 'Good Governance' as claimed by the BJP women folk have forgotten that even they have some rights in the society.
The NC Women Wing President said that today there is a dire need to make the women fully aware about their rights and take appropriate and adequate steps to empower the women folk so that they come forward to demand their entitlement under such rights. She said that since majority of women are home makers, they are the worst victims of the sky rocketing prices and unprecedented inflation during the BJP rule due to their wrong policies. She said that it has become very difficult for the women to run their households conveniently with the cost of LPG cylinder having crossed Rs. 1000 and not to talk of other essential commodities. She appealed to the women cadre of the party to work relentlessly at the grass roots level so that people further strengthen the most secular party of J&K.
