Thakur expressed confidence that the wing would take the issues concerning women to the booth-level during the Lok Sabha elections in 2024.

“From Congress government’s failure to fulfil its guarantees to instances of increasing atrocities against women, mahila morcha would effectively communicate these issues to the people,” Thakur said.

The former chief minister added that the mahila morcha would take the initiatives of the central and previous state government for women’s empowerment to every household. He highlighted schemes such as the Homemaker Facility Scheme, cutting bus fares for women by half, and the Shagun Yojana, where the government deposits 31,000 in the account of a Below Poverty Line (BPL) family’s daughter.

On the state Congress government soon going to complete one year in office, Thakur said that instead of addressing their shortcomings, they were busy blaming the previous government for their failures.
