Modi stresses on women education

 

Tokyo, September 3: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday stressed on the need for women's empowerment in the present-day world. Modi, who was addressing students of the Sacred Hearts University here, said he has always given a lot of importance to girl child education. "As a Gujarat chief minister, I dedicated myself to help educate the girl child in the state," Modi said in a tweet posted on the PMO twitter account.

The Indian prime minister, who is on a five-day visit to Japan, added that he spent $180 million for girl child education. He also noted that the Indian constitution framework seeks to integrate women in the decision making process. "Our current cabinet has 25 percent women, even our external affairs minister is a woman," he said. Responding to questions from students after his address, Modi said that commitment to peace and non-violence is "ingrained in the DNA of the Indian society".
