The initiative which will conclude on Chaitra Navratri sometime in April 2021 will see the participation of 23 government departments including basic education, secondary education, higher education, MSME. Several non-government agencies will also be participating in the programmes.
With the launch of the initiative, CM Yogi had promised zero tolerance towards crimes against women. The special awareness drive is aimed at boosting the morale of women and children and empowering them by making them aware of their rights. The rights and the laws related to women and children will be publicised through police stations and government departments as part of the initiative.
