Bengaluru, March 8: Saving culture of our women, who put the small amounts they save in day to day life in the mustard and cumin seed boxes in the kitchen, is far more stable than the banks of the western countries where the economic culture is oriented more towards spending, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said
The Chief Minister was speaking at a function organised as part of the International Women’s Day and presentation of the Kittur Rani Chennamma award, organised by the Department of Women and Child Development.
“In India the saving culture starts from the kitchen. Women save small amounts in cumin and mustard seed boxes in the kitchen. I am of the opinion that this saving culture of our women is far more stable than major banks,” Bommai said.
Let the women initiate economic revolution
Women should initiate economic revolution in the State. Women would be provided equal opportunities from home industries to startups, Bommai said.
Committed to bring the change
I am committed to bring a big change in the State. I have resolved to protect and care for every woman of the State, Bommai assured. Stressing the importance of sensitivity and conscience, the Chief Minister said, “conscience is very important. The world has seen liberalisation, globalisation and privatisation. Women should stand up for building a society based on relationships and culture with conscience.”
Remuneration of Anganwadi workers, Asha workers, Mid-day meal cooks and Paurakarmikas has been increased in the budget. I will work to further boost their economic strength in the coming days. “Women should resolve to lead the State and my government is with you in this endeavor,” Bommai said.
