Meghalaya CM Calls on Uma Bharti

Chief Minister of Meghalaya Shri Mukul Sangma has strongly supported the inter-linking of rivers by the centre. This was stated by him when he called on Union Minister for Water Resource, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Sushri Uma Bharti here today. The Union Minister discussed various issues related to her Ministry with Shri Sangma. Sushri Bharti showed keen interest in the various river projects of Meghalaya and assured all necessary help to the State from her Ministry. She stated that her Ministry accords top priority to the development of North- East and specially the State of Meghalaya. The Minister said that she will hold the next meeting of Bharmputra Board at Shillong. Sushri Bharti stressed the need for a detailed water mapping of North East.

The Meghalaya CM sought centre’s help in de-silting of rivers in his State and suggested that soil taken out after de-silting can be used for construction of embankments. Shri Sangma suggested that a pilot project on this can be started in his State. Shri Sangma said that he plans to develop his state as a major water sports and tourist destination and sought centre’s help in development of state water bodies. The Chief Minister was of the opinion that somehow Bharmputra Board could not deliver desired benefits and needs complete over haul. Sushri Bharti requested the Chief Minister to send a comprehensive river development proposal from his State.
Every police station must have 33% women police force for greater sensitivity towards crime against women: Smt. Maneka Sanjay Gandhi

The Union Minister of Women and Child Development, Smt. Maneka Sanjay Gandhi has emphasized that 33 percent of police force in every Police Station should be women to establish a system of automatic sensitization towards crimes against women. The Minister said that having ‘all women’s police stations’ further leads to the problem of segregation. She was speaking at a roundtable conference on ‘Gender Violence and Access to Justice: Assessment, Analysis and Policy’ in New Delhi today.

Highlighting the need for setting up one-stop crises centres for female victims of violence, Smt. Maneka Gandhi said that the Women’s Helpline cannot be completely effective till there is a one stop solution for women affected by violence especially rape. Such a solution will be provided at these crises centres which the Ministry proposes to set up and will be manned by nurses, psychologists, social workers, police among others.

Smt. Maneka Gandhi also highlighted the role of economic power as the main tool for gender equality, for which women must be trained to become economically independent. She said that Women Training Centers can be set up through the PPP model, for which the Union Ministry of Women & Child Development is willing to provide funds.

The Ministry is already working on the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme in 100 districts of the country with emphasis on awareness and advocacy through media and secondly by insisting on institutional deliveries, the Minister explained. The Ministry is working on a massive revamp of the Anganwadi system to help reduce malnutrition among children especially among girls, she said.

Smt. Maneka Sanjay Gandhi also released a book ‘Gender Identity and Violence- Female Deselection in India’ by Rainuka Dagar on the occasion.

The conference was organized by Institute for Development & Communication, India and International Development Research Centre, Canada. Academicians and civil society organisations participated in the seminar.
