All India Mahila Congress

PUDUCHERRY: All India Mahila Congress (AIMC) president Shobha Oza, on Tuesday urged the women cadre of the party to expose the Rangasamy government’s misrule and bring Congress back to power in the Assembly elections in 2016.

Addressing the cadre after releasing the book, Narendra Modi Arasin Vedanaigal, she said the Rangasamy government miserably failed to fulfil the promises in the last four years. The AIMC chief exhorted the cadre to work among the people and conduct door-to-door campaigns to bring the Congress party back to power.

Pointing out that Puducherry has not yet enhanced the mandated reservation of women in the local bodies from 33 per cent to 50 per cent, Oza urged party workers to fight for increased representation of women in local body elections.

Recalling that it was former PM Rajiv Gandhi’s effort that ensured 33 per cent reservation for women in local bodies, which has changed the destiny of women in the country.

Calling to empower women, Shobha Oza asked the women to fight against atrocities against women, children and all kinds of abuse. Terming the Modi government as anti-people, anti-women, she said the social security schemes of the previous UPA regime like MNREGA, ICDS, are facing curtailment under the current regime. Also, the Centre had cut the budget allocation for Health and Education.

She said the present government cannot bring development and lead the country to a bright future.
