Chittoor: Women should be more self-confident and never bring an idea of committing suicides in their minds, advised State Women's Commission Chairperson Nannapaneni Rajakumari. Addressing the valedictory meeting on the occasion of 'Cycle Yatra' conclusion by four women constables of Chittoor. The programme was organised in Chittoor on Thursday.
The constables-−Tirumala, Nirmala, Bhargavi and Nagarathna − have toured 1,200 kilometres in the district to build self-confidence among women that they can do anything and there is no need to commit suicide under any situation. Speaking at the meeting, Rajakumari advised that if women have any problems they can approach the Women's Commission.
"Our mother should be a role model for us. We should get inspiration from her and build our career by competing equally with men. By being educated, one can reach higher positions. Education is more important than wealth,” she observed. Women need to be more cautious about the TV serials and internet sites in which they are shown as ugly and in a disrespectful manner.
The Commission will take all steps to punish whoever makes an assault on women, she said and felicitated the four constables for their effort. District Collector PS Pradyumna lauded the efforts of the constables and the idea of District SP Rajasekhar Babu for taking up such a concept from October 24 to December 7. He said that women are mentally and emotionally strong even from ancient days than men.
“Women should face any untoward incident with courage and self-confidence. SP Rajasekhar Babu also spoke and explained the importance of ‘Cycle Yatra’.

ZP Chairperson S Girvani, MLA DK Satyaprabha, MLC Rajasimhulu and Mayor K Hemalatha also participated.
