Dimapur, April 15 (EMN): The Chozuba Town Chakhesang Students’ Union (CTCSU) in collaboration with the civil administration of Chozuba sub-division organised ‘Chozuba Area Inter-School Literary’ programme at Vamuzo Memorial Town Hall on April 13. Theodore Yanthan, additional deputy commissioner (ADC) was the special guest of the event that was conducted under the banner of “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao.”

Yanthan informed that “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015 to improve the status of women in the country and in view of the discrimination and social stigma associated with having ‘girl child’ in the family. He also asserted that, despite having a different culture, girl child in Naga society do face discrimination citing how many girls are made to help their parents at home and in the fields when the sons are sent to school. He went on to challenge the younger generation to transform the society into one where there is “gender equality.”
