Uttar Pradesh to commence 3rd phase of Mission Shakti today

The Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday begins the third phase of Mission Shakti. The mission aims of promoting women’s safety, self-reliance, and respect, said in a government statement.

CM Yogi Adityanath, Governor Anandiben Patel, and Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be a part of the event which will be held at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan in Lucknow at 10:30 am. Other participants who will attend the event are Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Dr. Dinesh Sharma, chief of UP’s state commission for women Vimla Batham, and other state ministers. Adityanath will also address 150,000 girls about the government’s chief minister Kanya Sumangala Yojana. A foundation stone for the courtyard of Veerangana Avantibai Battalion in Badaun will also be laid. In the meantime giving updates about the Mission Shakti led by the Uttar Pradesh government was earlier launched in October last year. It is to emphasize on safety, dignity and empowerment of women and girls. It also focuses on the rights of children, sexual crime against women and girls and adoption of orphaned girls.

Last month, Adityanath instructed the departments of education, woman and child welfare, health, and rural development to coordinate well for the third phase of the program. Pointing out that empowerment and safety of women were among the top priorities of the government, the chief minister said Mission Shakti has given positive results.
