Women should be respected for growth of society: Maurya

Kushinagar, Nov 15 (UNI) After inaugurating the Kushinagar Mahotsav, Uttar Pradesh Labour Minister Swami Prasad Maurya here on Thursday said that women should be respected, to ensure the development of society.

Addressing a gathering here, Mr Maurya said ”Kushinagar district is in a developing stage and we all should encourage girls here to do better in every field.”

He said the government has organised sports competition for girls for their overall development. Girls from small towns will be encouraged to follow the development path by such organisations, he claimed.

”Our golden history underlines the respect of women in our society. Legendary females like Savitri and Seeta have given direction to the society. Like our golden past, we should encourage our girls and nurture them to move forward in the society, he added.
