For ‘gender equality’, BJP vows to take UCC past Uttarakhand | India Information

NEW DELHI: From linking its promise of bringing a Uniform Civil Code to the thought of “gender equality” to promising to empower girls’s self-help teams (SHGs) with the talents and instruments required in key service sectors to extend their revenue, the BJP manifesto positioned girls’s empowerment as a key plank of its political and growth agenda.The manifesto stated “there cannot be gender equality till such time that Bharat adopts a UCC, which protects the rights of all women”.It goes on to reiterate its stand on UCC, “drawing upon the best traditions and harmonising them with modern times”. Earlier this yr, Uttarakhand grew to become the primary state to have a UCC.Highlighted passage of the ladies’s quota invoice, the manifesto stated, “We enacted the long-awaited Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam. We will systematically implement this to ensure representation for women in Parliament and state legislatures.”Addressing issues of marginalised sections, BJP vowed that every one eligible transgender people can be lined underneath Ayushman Bharat Yojana and the community of Garima Grahas to cater to the wants of transgender people can be expanded.Reiterating its dedication to empower 3 crore rural girls from self-help teams to turn out to be ‘Lakhpati Didis’ who earn a minimal revenue of Rs 1 lakh each year, BJP promised to combine girls SHGs within the service sector. “We will empower women SHGs with the skills and tools in key service sectors like IT, healthcare, education, retail and tourism with an aim to increase their income,” the manifesto stated.
