About Mission Shakti: 

The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is giving great stress on value system.

It intends to educate boys on the need to respect women under its “Mission Shakti” scheme.

It also entails programmes to make women more self-reliant, confident and getting more security.

A popular website noted that in the first phase of the campaign till October 25, the higher education department has created awareness among 5,57,883 students in 6,349 colleges through webinar, awareness programmes and competitions.

And in the second phase, the department will set up a portal in which all relevant information about programmes being run for women and girls will also be put up.

Now that the government has decided to include these things in the academics, parents feel delighted.

This is an important decision of the Yogi government which will change the thinking of boys. In the culture of India where Goddess 'Shakti' is worshipped, there will be real respect for girls. With this decision, the seeds of moral values will be sown in the students. The syllabus will inform about the life of great women personalities of India, success stories, gender equality and security-related issues.
