AKHIL BHARATIYA Mahila Congress president Rita Bahuguna Joshi has said that the UPA Government has formulated many schemes for the women empowerment. “The Congress workers need to make wide publicity of these schemes so that its benefit reaches every woman,” she has said.

Addressing a party meeting at KP Community Hall here recently, Dr Joshi said that the rural employment guarantee law was also enacted under the guidance of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. At least 33 per cent of these programmes would benefit the women. The Domestic Violence Act was also passed to protect the women from physical and mental torture. Different acts were also passed to give property right to women, she said. Joshi said that the Central Government had also launched many programmes for girls’ education. The loan procedures were eased for women beneficiaries, and self help groups were formed to give financial independence to the rural women.

Medicines  given to diarrhoea patients: A team   of doctors led by medical officer Dr RP Gautam examined the patients in the diarrhoea-affected Naika-Mahin village in Naini on Saturday.

Dr RP Gautam said that three patients were serious but after the treatment their condition became stable. The anti-diarrhoea medicines were also given to eight patients in Naika-Mahin village.

Most of the residents were taken ill after consuming stale food. Some residents were also receiving contaminated water, he added.
