“Increase in graph of sexual abuse with girls and women mirrors the increasing mental disorder in the society. Any Government or law never puts up vigilant check on this menace, but desired change requires social reform and women empowerment. Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao is one of the three dream projects of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to balance gender ratio and providing equal status to women in the society. Madhya Pradesh has emerged amongst top states in improving gender ratio, girls’ literacy and social security. Efforts are being made at different levels to bring social changes for justice with girls and women,” said Dr Rajendra Fadke, National Convenor of Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao Prakalp.

Dr Rajendra Fadke was talking to media during his visit to the city to chair a meeting with leaders and workers, on Sunday.

Former Assistant Organisation General Secretary (Maharashtra), Dr Fadke informed that there are three dream projects of PM, Narendra Modi include Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao, Namami Gange and Swachch Bharat Abhiyan. Bharatiya Janata Party, National President, Amit Shah has given him the responsibility of Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao Abhiyan. He has visited around 29 states in last three years for better execution of the campaign and spreading message of ‘Sabse Bada Dhan – Beti Aur Van’.

He already visited Indore, Gwalior, Bhopal and Ujjain and reached Jabalpur for first time during the campaign. Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan already worked tremendously to check female foeticide, ensuring education to every girl and providing them social security. These efforts improved the gender ratio of state upto 931:1000 against the national average of 929:1000 while 4-5 districts have registered upto 950:1000 gender ratio. Girls’ literacy rate has been in districts like Gwalior, Bhind, Morena and Datia. Dr Fadke informed that, in compliance with the order of Allahabad High Court, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand governments have started use of active tracker in Sonography machines to check female foeticide.

A pilot project has been recently started in Indore.
Replying to a query, Dr Rajendra Fadke said that PM, Narendra Modi made a strict law of capital punishment to the accused of rape with minor-aged girls, but the problem needs public awareness for eradicating this monstrous approach in society.
