‘Priyadarshini Scheme of UPA Closed’

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

‘Priyadarshini’, a scheme of the pre­vi­ous UPA gov­ern­ment to train women to be­come self-suf­fi­cient, has been closed down as it was a “very bad pro­gramme” and “ab­so­lutely no work” was done on the ground, women and child devel­op­ment min­is­ter Maneka Gandhi has said. Dur­ing the Ques­tion Hour in the Ra­jya Sabha, Gandhi said the scheme, which was im­ple­mented in seven dis­tricts of UP and Bi­har, was re­viewed when the Naren­dra Modi-led NDA gov­ern­ment came to power two years ago.
