One of the most important visions was that of independent and empowered women. He wrote that women should walk with their head held high while looking people in the eye.” “We are inspired by this vision and we are working to ensure women-led empowerment. In every sphere of our govt’s working there has been importance given to the dignity of women,” he further added.
