Apni Party committed for women empowerment: Altaf Bukhari



JAMMU, May 10: Apni Party President Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari today said his party is committed to the social, educational and political empowerment of women in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Women empowerment is our top priority. They are a major section of the society that remained neglected for decades.

On this occasion, dozens of women from Samba district joined the Apni Party in presence of Bukhari. While welcoming the new entrants into the party fold, he expressed hope that their joining would strengthen the party at the grass root level.

He congratulated the women wing of Jammu province for their team work and asked them to work at the ground level among the women in every nook and corner of Jammu province to address the issues being confronted by the women.

He said that “The women have played a very important role in every field. However, we think that they need social, educational, and political empowerment in J&K and their empowerment will help them to upgrade their living standard.”

He said that “The Apni Party believes in equality in society. Therefore, we have decided to enhance the marriage assistance of the poor girls at the time of their marriage up to 1 lakh, and this amount would be released within 1 month of their marriage.”

He said that the widow pension scheme/old age pension/handicapped would be increased up to Rs 5000 per month from Rs 1000, four free cooking gas cylinders per year to the poor families if the Apni Party forms the next Govt.

He also highlighted various other social security schemes which would be launched by the Apni Party if it forms the Govt in J&K.

He said that the skill development centers need to provide the latest skills to the women so that they can be able to earn their livelihood.

“The women entrepreneurship needs to be encouraged in J&K with the support of the Govt and banks through financial support in the shape of easy loans to start their own business,” he added.
