Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta took part in the cultural program “Kudiyan Di Lohri” organized by the State Mahila Morcha on the occasion of Lohri at the state office today and handed over the passbook of the account opened under the Pradhan Mantri Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana to 123 girls. State Vice President Dinesh Pratap Singh, Mahila Morcha president Yogita Singh, State Media Head Naveen Kumar, State Office Secretary Hukam Singh, senior leader Moolchand Chawla, former State Mahila Morcha President Mohini Garg including a large number of Mahila Morcha Karayakartas were present on the occasion. Mahila Morcha karyakartas Aruna Rawat, Poonam Bhati, Renu Singh, Shyam Bala, Sarika Gupta, Seema Nigam, Veena Pahadia, Tena Ahuja, Archana Kansal and Anita Sharma worked prominently to link the girls to the Prime Minister Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana.
State President Adesh Gupta said that, dedicating the festival of Lohri to the daughters by the State Mahila Morcha is the most outstanding example that the BJP is working with determination to empower the daughters and for their better future. He said that, “I congratulate Mahila Morcha for running the campaign to open accounts under Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana of girls. Many schemes are being run by the Modi government to make the future of daughters of the country bright. One such scheme is Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana and the economic as well as social dimension of this scheme is important. The money deposited in it will be solely for daughters, which will be useful in their education and marriage. This scheme will also promote women empowerment in the future by empowering girls.”
State Mahila Morcha President Yogita Singh said that, the festival of Lohri often symbolized the end of winter solstice and the harvesting of rabi crops, but it is believed that during the Mughal period there was a marauder named Dulla Bhatti who protested against selling of Hindu girls as slaves and liberated them. Peope thank him through songs for this noble cause on Lohri. She further said that, we have also dedicated the festival of Lohri to the daughters and hope that the girls have all round development and set an example in the society.
