THE 3rd AIPWA District Conference was organized at Lalbagh in Sitapur on 26 October 2019. The conference venue was named Rama Gairola Hall and the conference was dedicated to the memory of Comrade Tarawati.
Addressing the conference, AIPWA State President Comrade Krishna Adhikari said that the BJP is making a hypocritical show of women empowerment. Despite having a huge majority government at the Centre, they are not passing the long-pending 33% women’s reservation Bill. They are not giving even minimum wages to lakhs of women workers in the country including Rasoiyas, ASHA, Anganwadi workers and scheme workers. This is great injustice to women. The fascist Modi government is destroying the basic fabric of the Constitution by capturing all Constitutional institutions and wants to impose the Sangh-sponsored Hindutva agenda on the people of the country.
Comrade Sarojini said that the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh talks about the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (Save and Educate Daughters) slogan on the one hand, but on the other hand government Ministers, MLAs, and god-men-turned politicians are being protected in cases of rape and murder. Heinous incidents have come to light in Girls Homes like those at Muzaffarpur and Deoriya. Uttar Pradesh has broken all records and stands first among all States in the matter of violence against women.
The organizational report was presented and passed after discussion at the conference. A 13-member committee was elected with Comrade Sarojini and Comrade Geeta as District President and Secretary respectively. The committee members include Jaya Devi, Laxmi Devi Sharma, Parvati Devi, Anamika and Saroj Devi.
