Face-Off: Trivendra Panwar sheds light on the plight of women in Uttarakhand

t-panwarTEAM TGC: What steps would the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal take for the empowerment of women in the state?

TRIVENDRA PANWAR: 

In my opinion, women in Uttarakhand face several hardships. They are not looked after well as even in today’s time, their way of life has not changed, let along progressed, especially in the hills.

When we talk about the youth of the state, most of them have left the hills, and moved out to bigger cities; it makes me wonder why did we put in the hard work for creating a separate state. Whom did we create it for?

And the main reason behind this shift, in my opinion, is the lack of education and healthcare facilities, as these are extremely important within any society.

If these two aspects are improved upon, migration from the hills will stop.

At this point in time, all the education hubs of the state are in Dehradun, so it is a given that children would want to move to the plains to pursue quality, higher education. Furthermore, it is even more difficult for underprivileged children to avail such opportunities.

Had such educational hubs been established in the hills, it would have made education more accessible for children residing in these areas.

However, our party would do all that they can, given that it comes into power, for the empowerment and betterment of women.
