MP Chief Minister, Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan deserves kudos for launching “Beti Bachao Jagrit Abhiyan” and giving the slogans “Beti hai to kal hai-The world will survive only if daughter survives” and also, ” Beti nahi bachegi to bahu kahan se laogaye-If the daughters don’t survive wherefrom will you get the daughters-in-law?”. It is gratifying that he is doing so to discourage feoticide which has led to gender imbalance and neglect of girl child which has led to poor rate of development and poverty
He has launched many schemes to encourage girls to go to the schools, educate themselves and move further up. He has also encouraged mass marriages to stop the evil of dowry.
It can be said without any fear of contradiction that no nation can progress without its women folk participating in measure equal to the men folk in nation’s development. India has made great strides since independence in different fields and much of the credit for making it possible goes to women.
In the pre-independence days, women could at best join the professions of teaching or medical. Now thanks to the efforts of the social reformers and the government, they are not only in every field of human activity but they have also excelled men in several fields especially in engineering, banking and finance.
I’m sure MP CM’s laudable initiative will bring in handsome dividend in terms of states development in the years to come.
