PM Modi says Government flagship schemes have helped in empowering women

@BJP4Gujarat
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said, the flagship schemes launched by the government have helped in the empowerment of women. Mr Modi was addressing the National Convention of BJP's Mahila Morcha at Trimandir, a temple complex in Adalaj near Gandhinagar last evening. He accused the previous government of denying empowerment to women and said that NDA government has taken strong steps in the last four years for the women empowerment. 

The Prime Minister said, after independence, for the first time women became central beneficiaries in government schemes like Ujjwala yojana, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao and Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. He said, seventy percent of beneficiaries are women in MUDRA yojana.

Mr Modi asserted that the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao programme was launched for the respect of girl which is going on very well. He said, much still needs to be done in schemes like Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
The Prime Minister also announced that for the promotion of women entrepreneur partnership in MSME, Mega companies will have to purchase minimum three percent product from women entrepreneurs.
