Agartala Feb 06: With an aim to address key issues affecting women across the state, under the directions of All India Women Congress Committee, Tripura Pradesh Mahila Congress also launched ‘Nari Nyay Andolan’ here on Tuesday.
Addressing the press from the Pradesh Congress headquarters here in Agartala, Tripura Mahila Congress president Sarbani Ghosh Chakraborty said, “The ‘Nari Nyay Andolan’ is an initiative to safeguard the interests of women across the state and is a part of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra from Manipur to Mumbai”.
Describing the vital points of ‘Nari Nyay Yatra’, the state Mahila Congress president said, “Women reservation, inflation and atrocities against women are the key areas we will be working on”.
“Equal pay for equal work, improvement in healthcare facilities, sanitation facilities in work areas, free education for every girl child and other issues related to safety and security of women will also be raised”, she added.
The women Congress leader further criticized the BJP- led government claiming it to be responsible for ‘alarming hike in women related crimes in the state’.
“In 6-7 years of BJP government in Tripura, women-related crimes have increased alarmingly. In many cases BJP karyakartas are involved in heinous crimes like rape and murder of women or minor girls. But because of being associated with the ruling party they are saved from punishment. Also, in many such cases, the victim or her family cannot even dare to lodge an official complaint with the police”.
The women congress vowed to rush for all necessary assistance whenever any woman is in trouble in the state.
