Speaking at the international women's day celebrations on Tuesday, Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pass legislation to reserve 33 per cent of seats for women in the Parliament and state legislatures. As per reports, the event was organized by the department of women and child development.
Last Monday evening, PM Modi had declared that he intends to give up his accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, and handed the charge of his social media accounts to women with inspirational lives. He contended that this would help them motivate millions of people. Women who wish to get an opportunity to take charge of the PM's social media accounts for one day could post their stories on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram using the hashtag #SheInspiresUs or post a video on YouTube using the same hashtag.
