In the last four years, society’s view towards girl children and women empowerment has undergone a positive change, she said.“For the first time, the PM Modi government’s flagship schemes are focusing on women,” the former minister said, giving examples of Tripple Talaq, Swachh Bharat programme, Ujjwala scheme, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), where 75 per cent house owners are women.“Eighteen crores of the total Jan Dhan bank accounts belong to women,” she said, adding that the male-female sex ratio has also improved, especially in Haryana which has had a dubious record in the past. Modi government has passed Anti-Trafficking Bill and capital punishment will be given to rape convicts of minors,” she asserted.The senior BJP leader said that the BJP enjoys confidence of the people of the country from Panchayat-level to Parliament after exploring various options in the last six to seven decades. Women in the country has reposed faith in the BJP Government, she emphasized.Priya Sethi said that Central Government is committed to provide a unique platform for the J&K to excel in different fronts. “People who have been deprived of the citizenships of J&K are brought under the radar with the Domicile law passed by the Union Government. Justice has been delivered to the kins of people who have sacrificed their lives for the welfare of J&K,” she said, adding that BJP Government at the Centre is keen to provide best of its calibre to J&K under the patronage of PM Narendra Modi.
