RSS Sarakaryavah Suresh Joshi Bhayyaji, who was the guest speaker, said that Indian history had given prominence to culture and tradition in which women played a vital role.
“For a country to grow economically, socially and geographically it is important to focus on women empowerment. There is also a need to create awareness with regard to this in the country,” he added.
Stating that women played an important role in the growth of the country, Suresh Bhayyaji maintained that only economic, social and geographic growth would not help in country’s overall development and added that women should be given prominence in all walks of life including politics.
