Swaraj slams opposition parties for calling BJP anti-women
Union Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday slammed opposition parties for calling BJP anti-women. Swaraj was speaking in a Mahila Townhall in Ahmedabad.
Sushma Swaraj said, "Rivals call BJP anti-women party but it gave four women CMs and four women governors, adding there are six women cabinet ministers."
"Prior to our government, no woman was ever a member of Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), comprising Home, External Affairs, Defence and Finance Ministry," she said.
She further said that she was made EAM in May 2014 and now Nirmala Sitharaman is the Defence Minister. "Two out of four CCS members are women now."
Speaking of women safety, Swaraj said, "Centre will soon launch Push Panic Button Yojna to ensure women safety."
Gujarat BJP claimed that Mahila Town Hall with Sushmaji is a huge success and has received more than one lakh questions through various mediums.
