"We have chosen PM Modi's birthday to officially flag off the programme, and September 17 also happens to be Mahalaya. The ground-level workshops will begin from October 2 with one day slotted for every district. Any woman can enroll.

We speak for the safety of every single woman in the state, it is not for women of any particular party," she said.

Paul also referred to the incident of a taxi driver making lewd remarks at actor and Trinamool Congress MP Mimi Chakraborty, and alleged, "It shows that no woman is safe in the state."
