Cast vote keeping in mind future of your children, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra asks Assam women

Gohpur (Assam), Mar 1 (PTI) Congress general secretary
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday urged the women of Assam to
vote responsibly in the upcoming election as it is very
important for the future for them and their children.

The rate of crime against women in the state is the
highest in the country and the present government did nothing
to improve the situation, she claimed while interacting with
women tea garden workers and Self Help Group (SHG) members at
Gohpur in Bishwanath district.

“When you vote, think carefully and understand whether
the political party you are choosing and the leaders who are
going to represent you are capable of making policies that
will strengthen the future of your children,” she told the
gathering.

The BJP government is distributing scooter to girls
before the election but during the last five years, they have
done nothing for women, Gandhi claimed.

Under a scheme, the state government has distributed
two-wheelers to Class 12 girl students who passed in the first
division from the state board.

The prices of LPG cylinders, petrol and diesel are
skyrocketing, the Congress leader said.

The condition of tea garden workers has remained the
same during the last five years and their wages have increased
very little, Gandhi said.

The Assam cabinet last month approved a proposal to
increase the daily wage of tea garden workers in the state to
Rs 318, including Rs 101 for ration.

The Congress has already announced that when it forms
the government, the minimum daily wage of the tea garden
workers will be enhanced to Rs 365, Gandhi said.

“Women”s life is full of struggle. They bear the
burden of the household as well as work to earn a living. They
have immense power of tolerance but that does not mean, they
have to suffer and be persecuted”, she said.

Women have power in their hands which comes from their
right to vote and the party which will come to power must
understand that by empowering women, the society and the
future is empowered, the Congress leader added.

Elections to the northeastern state will be conducted
in three phases – on March 27, April 1 and April 6. PTI DG
