Mr Chouhan made the statement during the inauguration of women’s empowerment and protection campaign ‘Gauravi’ here.
The function was presided over by Union Health Minister Harshvardhan and noted film actor Aamir Khan was present on the occasion, an official release said.

Promising that Madhya Pradesh would lead in this direction, he urged society to support the efforts for women’s empowerment.

“Society should launch a campaign to change mindset towards women. Gauravi campaign is an important step towards this,” he noted.
