Govt. Should Stop Using Women for Public Relation, Says TRS Leader Kavitha
By: WE Staff | Friday, 10 June 2022
K Kavitha, the leader of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), questioned the Centre's drive for women's empowerment.
In a series of tweets, Kavitha slammed the Centre and said that it should stop using women for public relations.
She said, “PM and entire BJP government should for once out of sheer respect for women stop their PR against women's empowerment, when they continue to hide the truth behind extravagant publicity.”
The TRS leader also questioned the Centre's pricing hikes, claiming that they disproportionately harm women in the lower middle class.
She further said, "When the Government of India and its ministers speak about women's empowerment, they must also address their utter failure with controlling the price rise which directly affects lower-middle-class women.”
When it comes to Anganwadi workers, Kavitha believes the BJP government should apologise to them "for slashing their budget by 50%" while advocating for women's empowerment.
"Anganwadi sisters have shielded the villages from covid waves and have been working hard to increase nutrition levels of mother and child," she continued.
The Centre had remarked in a series of tweets shared by PM Modi that with the 8 years of women's empowerment, "The government has furthered the spirit of 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' and tried to create a discrimination-free and opportunity-filled environment for the girls" and "A big shift in empowering women through reforms has resulted in giving them wings to fly to newer heights."
On May 30, the BJP completed eight years in power and celebrated the accomplishments of the government's important projects around the country.
