Bhopal: Bharatiya Janata Party is fully focusing on women voters with an eye on upcoming assembly elections. Keeping in mind the importance of women voters, a group of women voters named ‘Kamal Shakti’ has been formed. The members of this group met at CM House on Thursday. The members belonged to Indore, Ujjain, Hoshangabad, Rewa and Bhopal division.

In this event, 22 women from each constituency took part. Each of these women members has to connect with fifty women and they would have to send its proof through Whatsapp to state BJP office. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, addressing the event, said Congress leveled all sorts of allegations including Vyapam scam on him. Shivraj may err but could not cheat, said the CM.

Chouhan, commenting on Congress state president, said when he wrote letter to sisters across the state on Rakshabandhan, it made Congress state president angry. Chouhan said who was Kamal Nath to come between his sisters and him. He said Congress may do what it wishes but it should not come between his sisters and him.

Chouhan said he had seen discrimination and problems of women and sisters since his childhood days. A campaign to inculcate values in the boys along with girl empowerment would also be launched, said Chouhan. Citing the efforts made by the government to check atrocities on girls and women, Chouhan said the state government framed the law to hang the rapists and so far 13 rapists have been sentenced capital punishment in the state.

Election campaign committee, convener and Union minister Narendra Singh Tomar terming Chief Minister Chouhan as ‘Arjuna of BJP’ said it was necessary that Arjuna got blessings from the sisters.  Minister for woman and child development, Archana Chitnis, explaining the outline of Kamal Shakti campaign, gave a slogan of ‘Mein Banati Hun Sansar, Mein Banaungi Sarkar’. She said the Chief Minister has sacred relationship of brother-sister with half of the population of the state.
