Amit Shah: In a democracy, empowering the weak, women, kids most important.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said empowerment of women from the poor, backward communities and ensuring that the rights of children are protected is the most important part of any democracy.
While speaking at an event in Nidhrad village in Sanand Assembly, which is a part of the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency, he added that that individuals are the smallest and foremost units of any democracy, and all infrastructure projects are meaningless if people remain malnourished and poor. Only when this is ensured can one say that elected representatives are doing their duty, Shah said. Shah, who is also the Gandhinagar MP, was speaking at an event which marked the launch of an initiative to provide nutritional laddoos to pregnant women.
