Bengaluru: While Uttar Pradesh is in the eye of a storm for the Hathras rape horror, here is a move that comes to bolster the confidence of the girl child. 

Muzaffarnagar district has come up with an ingenious idea to give more prominence to girls. 


As per reports, families here have put up nameplates with the names of the girls in their families. 

“The campaign is still on. More than 200 nameplates were put up on the doors of the houses in various villages in the last few days,” said district probation officer Mohammad Mushfakeen, as reported by the Times of India.

“The families with no daughters were told to put the names of their women members. Like people can put the names of their wives on the nameplate,” he said, it further quoted. 

It was organised by the department of women and child development.

An awareness campaign was created in this regard as well. 

In another piece of news, as reported by Times Now, on Sunday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a special awareness campaign for women. The Chief Minister held the program through video conferencing, in view of the coronavirus outbreak. 

During the campaign, CM Adityanath said that 'Mission Shakti' had been launched on Saturday by the state government and the work under the campaign is being carried out in full swing.

The mission endeavours to talk about issues that affect women and help them deal with it. A number of teachers, volunteers and members of self-help groups are taking part in it.
