BENGALURU: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that the state government has “installed 7,000 CCTV cameras in Bengaluru” under the Safe City project to provide safety and security to women.

Besides, Rs 1,000 per woman who works in the field will be given every month”, he said.

Bommai said the role of a woman in a man’s life is very big as it starts from a relationship to achievement. “For this reason, International Day of Women is celebrated. Not a day passes without a woman. It is a pre-birth relationship as a mother keeps a baby in he womb for nine months and brings the child into this world. Understanding this will teach us how to respect mothers. Unfortunately, many people are not aware that the continuity of mankind depends on her”, Bommai said.

Observed on March 8 every year, International Women’s Day is a global event that celebrates the achievements of women in cultural, social economic and political fields. (ANI)
