“WOMEN have taken over

“WHO says women are a weaker sex? Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru had once remarked: “When a woman moves forward, the family moves, the village moves and the nation moves.”

Women are natural organizers and have an innate flair to perceive problems. Successful handling of Assembly Elections in Punjab by Chief Electoral Office Kusumjit Sandhu has reinforced the point.

No major untoward incident from any corner of the state, putting right people at the right place, achieving a record 78.6% polling and, to top it all women votes exceeding men votes (79.11% to 78.09%)- these achievements have put this strong woman on a pedestal where we don’t cry for women empowerment, rather exemplify the fact that ‘women have taken over.”
