`Better deal for women during Congress rule'

By Our Staff Correspondent

HASSAN, FEB. 17. The district in-charge Minister, H.C. Srikantaiah, said today that the Congress Government had given proper representation to women in various fields.

Speaking after laying the foundation stone for a power transmission tower and a bus stand at Didaga in Channarayapatna taluk, Mr. Srikantaiah said the Centre, which promised 33 per cent reservation for women in elected bodies, failed to fulfil it. But the State Government headed by S.M. Krishna was successful on the matter. It had reserved various posts for women, he claimed.

He said the major achievement of the Government was the formation of Stree Shakti self-help groups to help poor women. It had given priority for providing electricity and water to farmers.

Mr. Srikantaiah also laid the foundation stone for a power transmission tower at Yaachenahalli in Channarayapatna taluk, and flagged off buses being introduced by the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation here.
