Rs 100 cut in LPG, Murty nomination to RS on Women Day

The International Women’s
Day on Friday was marked by
some key announcements,
including a Rs 100 cut in cooking
gas cylinder prices and
nomination of philanthropist
Sudha Murty to Rajya Sabha, as
Prime Minister Narendra Modi
highlighted how his
Government’s numerous measures
have empowered women.
Modi said the reduction of
Rs 100 in LPG cylinder prices
will significantly ease the financial
burden on millions of
households across the country

especially benefiting “Nari Shakti”
(women power).
“By making cooking gas more
affordable, we also aim to support
the well-being of families and
ensure a healthier environment. This
is in line with our commitment to
empowering women and ensuring
‘Ease of Living’ for them,” he said in
a post on X.
Attending the first National
Creators’ Award later, Modi urged
content creators to increasingly
make women a part of their work.
He said the “collaboration of
content and creativity grows
engagement, collaboration of content
and digital brings transformation,
and collaboration of content
with purpose shows impact”.
He urged the content creators to
bring inspiration through their content
and recalled that he had raised
the issue of disrespect towards
women from the ramparts of the
Red Fort.
Modi also requested them to forward
the spirit of equality among
parents while raising boys and girls.
He said the content creators
should showcase the capabilities of
“nari shakti” (women power) and
gave ideas on depicting how a mother
conducts her daily tasks and
women from rural and tribal areas
engage in economic activity.
“Content creation can help rectify
wrong perceptions,” he said.
Murty’s nomination to the Upper
House by President Droupadi
Murmu was first announced by
Modi as he lauded her contribution
in diverse fields.
The Prime Minister asserted in a
post on X that her presence in the
Upper House is a powerful testament
to women power, exemplifying
the strength and potential of
women in shaping the nation’s destiny.
Wishing her a fruitful tenure, he
said, “I am delighted that the
President of India has nominated
Sudha Murty Ji to the Rajya Sabha.
Sudha Ji’s contributions to diverse
fields including social work, philanthropy
and education have been
immense and inspiring.”
Murty, wife of Infosys cofounder
N R Narayana Murthy, is
also the chairperson of the Murty
Trust and has authored several
Modi also shared short videos to
highlight as to how difference
schemes of his Government have
empowered women.
“A home is the foundation of
dignity. It’s where empowerment
begins and dreams take flight. PMAWAS
Yojana has been a gamechanger
to further empowerment of
women,” he said on X about a
scheme under which crores of
homes for the poor have been built,
with more women than men getting
the ownership.
The PM Svanidhi scheme, a
micro-credit facility for street vendors,
has brought happiness to the
lives of poorest workers, who
include a large number of women,
he said.
The “Lakhpati Didi” scheme, an
initiative for financial empowerment
of women associated with self-help
groups, has become a big platform
to empower them, he added in
another post.
Women associated with the
group are a strong foundation for
building a developed India, he said.
“NaMo Drone Didis are champions
of innovation, suitability and
self-reliance. Our Government is
leveraging the power of drones to
further women empowerment,” the
Prime Minister said.
The posts, made on International
Women’s Day, were accompanied
by short videos, highlighting the
positive impact these schemes have
made on women.
Women have been at the centre
of Modi’s outreach and he has often
asserted that their support to him and
the ruling BJP have played a significant
role in the party’s successes.
In the run up to the Lok Sabha
polls, expected to be held in April-
May, the BJP has intensified its connect
with them as it looks to score a
bigger win and retain power for a
third straight term under Modi. (PTI
