Uttarakhand State government will honor those who give information about violence against women and children and child marriage and try to stop it. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami announced this while starting the Women’s Empowerment and Safety Week under International Women’s Day. CM Dhami said that we are the seekers of that culture, where the vision of a man is considered in complete without a woman.
In a program organized at the Chief Minister’s residence, the Chief Minister said that the person who tries to stop the incidents of mental and physical violence against women and children by informing them at the competent level will be known as women’s security guard. Such a person or group will be honored on special occasions by the government.
Apart from this, the person or organization who gives pre-information of child marriage to the police or tries to stop it, will be rewarded with an amount of ten thousand rupees. Appreciation certificates will also be given to the employees and officers who have made special contribution in these works.
CM said that the backbone of any society or state is its strong women. If the women power of a state is progressing, then the development of that state is sure, no one can stop it. Women have made their special contribution in the construction of Uttarakhand. On the one hand, where the mother power of the state has taught the entire society to live and fight in adverse circumstances, on the other hand it has also taught it to win in every situation. Women are playing an important role in nation-building, shoulder to shoulder with men.
