Bhopal: As the assembly election is nearing, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is trying to woo women in Madhya Pradesh.

It celebrated Ladli-Laxmi Utsav at Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s residence on Tuesday.

He announced that the government would pay the fees of Ladli-Laxmis for studying in medical colleges, IITs, IIMs, law schools, and in other institutions of national and international repute.

Chouhan said a special drive would be launched for Ladli-Laxmis from May 9 to 15.

Sports competitions, drawing contests, and other events would be organized as part of the campaign, he said, adding that 16 years have passed since the Ladli-Laxmi Yojna was launched.

There are 44.85 lakh Ladli-Laxmis in the state, he said, adding that the girls were considered a burden in the family and that really pained him.

There has been an improvement in the sex ratio in the state because of the schemes launched for women, he said.

Now, the state has 956 girls against 1,000 boys, and the government is making special efforts for women’s empowerment, Chouhan said.

Women have been given reservation in elections as well as in jobs, the Chief Minister said.

He, however, kept mum over the wrestlers’ agitation against BJP MP Brij Bhushan Saran Singh in New Delhi.

Chouhan has given a gold medal to Muskan Bhuria from Jhabua for winning the state archery competition.

Similarly, Himani Baghel from Seoni was given Inspire Award. Similarly, Keshvi Tiwari from Ratlam was given a certificate and a trophy for shining in the international martial art (karate) competition.
