Lucknow, 23 July: The state government of Uttar Pradesh has launched a 10-day special campaign to safeguard women’s safety, respect, and self-reliance.

The program, organised by the Women and Child Safety Organisation on the orders of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, aims to empower women in the state.

The promotional campaign, which began on Friday, July 21, will culminate on July 30. Furthermore, this campaign will continue from the 21st to the 30th of each month.

Moreover, this campaign will strengthen the Mission Shakti Abhiyan, which is currently being conducted in Uttar Pradesh to ensure women’s protection.

“Women and daughters of the state will be informed about various welfare schemes of the government during the campaign,” said Anupam Kulshrestha, Additional Director General of Police, Women and Child Safety Organisation. He also stated that “problems encountered by women in accessing government schemes would be addressed by coordinating with the relevant department.”

Kulshrestha stated that while the department resolves problems of women and daughters on a daily basis, the 10-day campaign would accelerate the resolution even further, with ‘Shakti Didis’ contacting women in the field and addressing their issues quickly.

During the campaign, female policemen from the women’s police beat will visit with victims of sexual offences and give counselling as needed.

At the same time, they will assist them in any manner that they require. Children will be made aware of crime against children while visiting the beat area’s schools (primary/higher secondary/intermediate schools).

Meanwhile, youngsters will be taught the difference between good and bad touch. Experts will also organise lectures for this purpose. Aside from alerting their officers, they will make contact with several departments to find a solution.

During the campaign, ‘Shakti Didi’ would guarantee that anarchic elements are dealt with in accordance with the Goonda Act.

Furthermore, during the Shakti didi campaign, unique camps will be set up in metropolitan areas to answer women’s concerns through pink booths and outposts. A one-stop solution camp can be organised at the pink booth after reviewing the challenges of women at the local level.
