Today some group of People, including some home makers and anganwadi workers as well as with some well known personalities, formed a human chain at the India Gate lawns to send out the message that violence against women should not be tolerated. They formally launch the women and child development ministry’s campaign.
They also demanded to go beyond schemes and sensitise people about violence against women and the importance of empowering women so that they can fight for their own rights. Therefore, we are starting this nation-wide campaign and will go to every states with this message.
The event was organised on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s 140th birth anniversary since, as Gandhi preached non-violence and women empowerment.
To symbolise that every individual must join hands to make the mission successful, prominent personalities like Delhi Lt. Governor Tejender Khanna, former IPS officer Kiran Bedi and danseuse Shovana Narayan formed a human chain along with scores of other participants, including health workers and others.
