A word on women empowerment
Speaking on women empowerment, Mrs. Ranjan said that she believes that reservation in Lok Sabha isn’t the solution; rather it’s a part of a larger effort needed to empower women.
She further said that while granting reservation, it should be kept in mind that kith and kin of women MPs don’t enter local bodies or Parliament. Moreover, its benefit should go to only those women who actually need reservation for upliftment.
An independent woman
Mrs. Ranjan stated that she is an independent woman, who has got all the rights to do each and every thing in life. ‘My life has been such that my parents have never objected to whatever I have done so far’, she said.
