QUETTA: Balochistan Governor Amanullah Yasinzai said the participation of women is a prerequisite for democracy and stability of economy.
“The role of women cannot be ignored,” the governor said while talking to a delegation from the Dignity of Women Welfare Society led by president Famida Hazara on Wednesday.
Through economic independence women can protect their rights in society, he said, adding that the participation of women in all social and political activities can help gain success.
Yasinzai said the government believes in providing equal opportunities to everyone, without any discrimination. He lamented that most women are deprived of their fundamental rights in the society.
He highlighted Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) and other organisations that promote welfare for women, to ensure the provision of basic necessities to women at their doorstep and equip them with skills.
