New Delhi: Prime Minister  Narendra Modi has given  a comprehensive exposition of  government’s vision of women empowerment.

“Absence of basic facilities like housing, electricity, toilets, gas, roads, hospitals and school has impacted the women, poor women in particular, most severely. Today when we are entering 75th year of Independence and we see the progress of last seven decades, feeling is inevitable that these problems should have been addressed decades ago, ” Prime Minister said while speaking after launching Ujjawala 2.0 at Mahoba in Uttar Pradesh via video conference.

Prime Minister said that leaking roof, absence of electricity, sickness in the family, waiting for it to get dark for toilet, absence of toilet in schools affect our mothers and daughters directly.

Narendra Modi struck a personal note and said that our generation has grown seeing our mothers suffering from smoke and heat, an official release said.

Prime Minister questioned if our energy is spent on dealing with these basic needs, how can we move towards 100 years of our independence. “How can a family or a society dream big and achieve them if they keep struggling for basic facilities. Feeling that dreams can be fulfilled is essential for a society to achieve its dreams, ” he said.

“How can a nation become aatmnirbhar (Self-reliant) without aatmvishwas (self confidence)” asked Prime Minister.

Narendra  Modi said that in 2014 we asked these questions from ourselves. It was very clear that these problems need to be addressed in a definite time frame.

Prime Minister said that our daughters will be able to come out of the house and kitchen and contribute extensively in nation building only when  problems related to house and kitchen are solved first.

“Therefore, in the last 6-7 years, Government has worked to get solutions to various issues of women empowerment on a mission mode, ” he added.
