Speaking at the concluding session of the Working Committee of the BJP Mahila Morcha, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that he wants more women to join the police as they could beat up the goons well.

He said that he supports 50 per cent reservation for women. “We want women in an adequate number in the police force but unfortunately we are not able to find them,” Yogi said.  He added that while the state government had initially added 33 per cent reservation for women in UP Police, the same was later decreased to 20 per cent. However, the state government would begin the process of recruiting as many as 50,000 police constables by March next year. He even urged the BJP Mahila Morcha members to convince women to join the police force.

He added that over and above the 50,000 vacancies in the police force, the state government will also have as many as 68,500 in the education field.

The CM also asked the Mahila Morcha members to ensure maximum women participation at the booth level. There are 1.60 lakh booths in the state and if the Mahila Morcha prepares five women at each booth, the total number of women participating could reach around 8 lakhs. And if that happens, that will lead to a historic victory for the BJP.
