“Congress National President, Rahul Gandhi is lucky for Bharatiya Janata Party as wherever he conducted roadshow, it proved fruitful for BJP. Rahul’s roadshows in the State will ensure fourth consecutive landslide victory of BJP,” said Rakesh Singh, State President of Bharatiya Janata Party and Member of Parliament.
Rakesh Singh was addressing a press conference to inform about centenary birth year celebration of Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia, on Thursday.


He informed that the State-wide centenary birth year celebration of Vijayaraje Scindia will be started in a grand programme in Gwalior, on October 12. Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Vijaya Rahatkar, National President of BJP Mahila Morcha, will grace the occasion. Other senior leaders of BJP, including Union Minister, Uma Bharti, will attend programme in Sagar, Union Minister, Smruti Irani in Indore, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti in Chhindwara, National General Secretary, Saroj Pandey in Ujjain, National Spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi in Jabalpur, UP’s Cabinet Minister, Reeta Bahuguna Joshi in Rewa and other senior women leaders will be present during centenary birth year celebration of Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia in different districts. Senior leaders will flag off women’s marathon of BJP Rashtriya Mahila Morcha from Gwalior to Delhi. State President, Rakesh Singh said that Madhya Pradesh always played lead role for women empowerment and doing justice to women. Vijayaraje Scindia was the torch bearer of women power when the concept of women empowerment was not incepted.

The State is still leading in protection of women by passing ordnance of capital punishment to rape victims and started campaign of ‘Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao’. Along with the great woman warriors like Rani Laxmi Bai, Veerangana Jhalkari Bai and Devi Ahilya Bai, Vijayaraje Scindia never compromised on atrocities against women and protection of democracy and also played a key role during Ram Janmabhoomi Andolan. BJP always respected women and provided them equal platform as two women are shouldering sensitive responsibilities of Defence Minister and Foreign Minister, while six women are Governors in the country. Centenary birth year celebration of Vijayaraje Scindia will strengthen the nationwide campaign of women empowerment. During the press conference, BJP City President, G S Thakur, Mayor, Dr Swati Godbole, Minister of State Sharad Jain, MLAs, Ashok Rohani, Nandini Maravi, Pratibha Singh and Sushil Tiwari were present.
