Our government has successfully passed the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam bill, advocating for women's rights in all sectors. During my previous tenure, I initiated numerous schemes and projects. Notably, the construction of Bhind-Etawah 4-lane road and the integration of railway projects with the Amrit Yojana were launched. In my forthcoming tenure, I aim to ensure the successful implementation and operation of these projects for the benefit of the people in my constituency.”
