  • | Tuesday | 4th August, 2020

Khattar said 50% seats will be reserved for women candidates in the upcoming panchayati raj elections.

Taking forward the campaign of ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar lal Khattar has declared on the day of Raksha Bandhan to open 11 new colleges for women and reserve 50% seats for women in the upcoming Panchayati raj elections.

“This is a special gift of Raksha Bandhan for the women of the state,” he said. The state government, Khattar said, aims to set up a college in every 10km radius.

The chief minister said on the lines of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’, every constituency from Panchkula to Nuh and Jagadhri to Dabwali has a college. He said at present, there are 161 government colleges in the state.

“However, it is surprising that when the Congress was in power, not a single college was opened in Baroda constituency. Thus, two colleges have been announced for Baroda,” he added.

Khattar said 50% seats will be reserved for women candidates in the upcoming panchayati raj elections.

‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign made a difference and bore fruitful results with the cooperation of people, he said, adding that the gender ratio had currently reached 923, which was merely 871 earlier.
