JAMMU, Dec 27: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has empowered the women of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir by introducing various schemes for their welfare. It was really an irony of the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir that the women remained deprived of significant rights for decades.

The former Minister has complemented J&K Prajapati Sabha for organizing Nari Sammelan every year with an objective to make aware the women about various schemes launched by the Centre for betterment and up-liftment of their social status. She lauded J&K Prajapati Sabha for playing a vital role in the society by highlighting several social issues like female foeticide, strengthening of women, removing of backwardness, providing education and removal of domestic harassment to women in the entire society.
The former Minister said the Modi Government has done a lot for the women of Jammu and Kashmir by initiating several schemes like Ujjawala Yojana, Sukanya scheme, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme, One Stop Centre Scheme, Women Helpline Scheme, UJJAWALA, Nari Shakti Puraskar, Tripple Talaq, 33 per cent reservation in politics for women, Mahila Shakti Kendras (MSK), Nirbhaya and a lot more since 2014.
