Women empowerment instrumental in Modi’s campaigns

ndia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ruchira Kamboj, said on Friday that PM Modi’s leadership has been instrumental in highlighting the importance of gender equality and women’s empowerment through impactful campaigns such as ‘Beti Bachao’ and ‘Beti Padao’.
The Permanent Representative to the UN stated at the CSW67 Side Event “A World We Women and Girls Want: Technology Enabled Social and Economic Advancement” that India’s ancient civilizational values and cultural ethos have taught us to recognize gender equality and the empowerment of women as one of the fundamental principles of our society.
She said that a number of citizen-centric digital projects were also implemented by the Indian government, with a particular emphasis on facilitating women’s access to credit, technology, and employment. According to her, the main goals of these activities have been to significantly help distressed women, prevent violence against women, and encourage women’s equal involvement in all aspects of society.
While addressing the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, Kamboj said, “Let me dismiss the frivolous, baseless, and politically motivated remarks made by the delegate of Pakistan regarding the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. My delegation considers it unworthy to even respond to such malicious and false propaganda. Rather, our focus is where it shall always be positive and forward-looking.”
This statement came after Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari referred to Jammu and Kashmir in his remarks to the Council debate. In her speech at the UNSC, Kamboj said that the violence perpetrated by terrorists against women and girls remains rampant and should be strongly condemned while calling for adopting a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of terrorism.
