Just political empowerment is pointless: Agatha

By The Assam Tribune

SHILLONG, Sept 10 � Asserting that her party will make a concerted effort for passage of the Women�s Reservation Bill in the Lok Sabha at the earliest, NCP leader and Union Minister of State for Rural Development Agatha Sangma yesterday said political empowerment of women should facilitate their socio-economic empowerment.

�Political empowerment is just one aspect. Socio-economic empowerment is another aspect. Empowerment is required in the collective sense,� Sangma said here.

She said there are a lot of women in politics even now, and wondered whether that has actually transformed into socio-economic empowerment of the women masses.

�Political empowerment should facilitate socio-economic development of women. If not, it is pointless to have just political empowerment,� she maintained. � PTI
