The state of Rajasthan is poll-bound and the elections are going to be an arduous task for the Bhartiya Janta Party. With everything that BJP did for women, it is, however, something that the party can bank on. The Vasundhara Raje led state government has paid special attention to the women of the state and this hard work will bear fruits in the upcoming elections that have been called the “practice run” for the 2019 national elections for BJP.
Rajasthan is considered difficult for BJP this year as the voters are known to alternate between BJP and Congress. However, with everything that BJP did for women, the party does have reasons to relax a little and depend on them to drastically increase their vote counts. We are making Rajasthan strong, aggressive, and a progressive state. Women are our new strength and they are going to unleash new energy.” Vasundhara Raje had said in a statement.
There are many who will call the work done by Rajasthan government empty claims that have no ground reality, this is however not true. Following are some of the most things out of everything that BJP did for women.
This is one scheme that aimed at assisting the financial empowerment of more than a one crore women of the state. The women on whom this scheme was targeted gained financial freedom to tons of women who are now no longer dependent on their families for their economic welfare. Under this scheme, the women received the monetary help directly as it was transferred into their account. With benefits of almost fifteen hundred crores distributed under this scheme, this was one of the most practical things everything that BJP did for women.
A self-defence programme that was aimed at empowering the girl child to defend herself was undertaken.
this is a digital literacy programme under which women between the ages 25 and 30 will be granted the power to act as patrons so that they can chart the course and play an active role in making a digital Rajasthan.
These are just a few examples of the numerous women-centric schemes that the BJP bought in to empower the women of Rajasthan.
