Peddapalli: High standard and a better society could be built by developing the women in the society, observed District in-charge Collector S Prabhakar Reddy.
He participated in the closing ceremony of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ programme, organised under District Welfare Officer at a private function hall here on Monday.
Speaking on the occasion, the in-charge Collector said that it is everyone’s responsibility to educate and protect the girl child. Even today female feticides are going on in some areas, which is against nature and harmful for sustenance of the mankind.
There will be no happiness in a family without daughters, he felt. Stating that the number of women is much lower compared to the men, he said it is the responsibility of everyone to increase the ratio of women to cope up with the population of men.
Reddy said that as per Indian Constitution, everyone has equal rights to live. Women are competing with men in every field and becoming collectors, engineers, doctors and even in politics also they are showing their mark by enduring positions like Prime Ministers and President.
Discrimination against girls should be removed and girls should be told to develop self-confidence to reach greater heights in their lives.
A better and high standard society could be built by the women with their development, observed the in-charge Collector.
MLC Dasari Manohar Reddy said that to create awareness among the people about the decrease in men and women ratio, the Central government had taken an initiation and started a unique programme called ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’.
He suggested the people of this region to understand the importance of girl child and must educate her along with providing protection to her and to treat them equally with boys.
Regional Coordinator of Women Welfare Department Mula Vijay Reddy, District Panchayat Raj Officer Sudharshan, District Education Officer Venkateshwar Rao, District Health Officer Dr Pramod Kumar and students of various educational institutions were present along with other officials.
