Targeting the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday said women’s welfare was never a priority for previous Central Governments.
Speaking at the fifth national convention of the BJP Mahila Morcha here, the Prime Minister said, “After exploring various options in the last six to seven decades, women in the country reposed faith in the BJP.
Previous Governments did not do anything to provide even basic facilities to women and (they) just made promises.”
Those who ruled India for 60-70 years failed to provide basic amenities for women’s welfare, he said adding the previous Governments just kept waiting for the right time to usher social reforms and change in attitude.
In the last four years, society’s view towards girl children and women empowerment has undergone a positive change, Modi said.
