The Governor noted that, considering the theme of International Womens Day 2016- Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality- every man and woman should take a pledge to contribute towards the achievement of gender parity.
The Governor said that the State and the Central Government have established various welfare schemes which have the objective of promoting their education and empowerment.
