Manipur revenue minister Karam Shyam Monday encouraged the women to participate in electoral politics.

Speaking after the final match of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (BBBP) Football Tournament, the minister said that even though women of Manipur are moving forward in all spheres including education, sports and administration, there was still less participation in election and politics. 

“We should encourage Manipuri women in electoral politics in order to take part in decision making on state issues and to serve the state,” he said.

The minister recalled the sad past of the country when abortion was prevalent and when women were victimized after birth by depriving them of education.

He appreciated Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to save the girl child and provide proper education apart from ensuring them of their deserving rights. “We should encourage women morally, physically and financially,” he added.

State forest and environment minister Th Shyamkumar stated that skills like courage and hard work were required in the game of football.  He felt that Manipuri women will continue to take a big responsibility in sports in the future and will try to carve a niche in the global map. Principal secretary (health) V Vumlunmang said, “Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao is indeed what we should all work together for, we should have a healthy society.”

Imphal East DC Dr Rangitabali Waikhom said, “Sports motivate and inspire all of us. Let’s celebrate girl power, women power. Let us all be proud to be a girl.”

Earlier, ESU Team B, Wangkhei beat AMMA Team, Andro by 2-1 goals in the final match of the BBBP football tournament.
