As campaign for the first phase of Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra gathers momentum, Shiv Sena is trying to woo women voters, starting with a Mahila Melawa programme in Aurangabad constituency.
About 200 women from Sena and BJP attended the programme addressed by Sena spokesperson Neelam Gorhe. She demanded uniform civil code should be implemented for the betterment of women from all communities.
If Sonia Gandhi opposes communalism, then why is Congress not daring to implement uniform civil code, she asked.
Crimes against women have increased during the UPA regime and security of the state has collapsed, she said.
Gorhe guided the party workers on how to reach to the last strata of society and bring them for voting. She asked the party activists not to be negligent towards other parties and candidates and asked them to speed up campaigning in last few days.
Gorhe highlighted works done by Sena's sitting MP Chandrakant Khaire, who is seeking a third term from the constituency. Khaire's wife Vaijayanti, who was also present for the programme, requested people to vote for her husband.
