BJP Mahila Morcha proposal against price hike
Bhopal, May 14 (UNI) The BJP Mahila Morcha's two-day Madhya Pradesh executive committee meeting, which concluded here today, passed a proposal against spiralling prices and demanded that the Congress-led UPA government should check the hike.
''The regime's erroneous policies are leading to a constant increase in common consumer durables' rates,'' the Morcha's state Chairperson Anju Makhija told reporters here.
The gathering warned that if prices rose unchecked then the Morcha would unleash a countrywide agitation. Participants expressed concern over female foeticide and decided to initiate an awareness campaign besides making women's upliftment schemes reach to even the forest-dwellers.
''The Morcha undertook a nationwide signature campaign favouring one third reservation for women in Parliament and state assemblies.
The then NDA government even endeavoured to table a bill in Parliament but the opposition did not allow it,'' Ms Makhija added.
Expressing dissatisfaction over limited women's participation in Madhya Pradesh's BJP government, she explained that the Morcha broached the subject with the government and party organisation.
''The Morcha's future programmes were accorded final shape at the meeting. District-level child health camps will be set up on 'Bal Suraksha Diwas' -- June 1 -- intensive plantation will take place on World Environment Day -- June 5 -- along with a campaign for banning polythene, anti-terrorism seminars are scheduled for Pandit Shyama Prasad Mukherjee's martyrdom anniversary -- June 23 -- and programmes for girls will be organised on World Population Day -- July 11,'' Ms Makhija added.
