We have a woman as MP for last 20 years, had a lady CM and at every point of time at least one MLA has been woman in last 10 years, a woman mayor but still our state and particularly Indore lags behind even places like Orisa and UP in terms of how we utilize funds of central government schemes. Just some examples
working women hostel :
my doubt is most of these are only on papers.
at least in Indore it lists following
All India Women's Conference, Indore 1981-82 Indore 30 30 completed
Pragathi Mahila Kendra, Indore 1983-84 Indore 92 0 completed
Bhartiya Grameen Mahila Sangh, Jawahar Marg, Indore 1986-87 Indore 28 0 completed
Indian Red Cross Society, Indore, 1988-89 Pradesipura Indore 51 0 completed
My guess is most of these are on paper.
In a scheme called STEP whereas other states have got huge funds we have zero allocation
same holds true for a scheme called ujjawalla
swadhar scheme does have listing but almost all of them are parivar paramarsh kendra of MP police so no NGO activity of worth name.
one can go on and on if one tries to look in detail in to different schemes and their allocation.
So what is our MP Sumitra Mahajan doing?
