Self-dependent women are capable to build a prosperous state. Since the present government came into power, it has been working on priority basis towards generating income opportunities for women, said Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb in an interactive programme with successful SC category women beneficiaries under Duck rearing project, Rudrasagar.
The beneficiaries shared their stories to the Chief Minister of becoming financially independent through duck rearing from the ducklings distributed to them by the state government.
Then the Chief Minister distributed ducklings among 18 beneficiaries.
The Chief Minister said, 50 thousand ducklings were distributed to generate income sources for 1 thousand women to help them become financially independent.
Women are now earning income through duck breeding which is a perfect example of the mindset created in the state to become self-dependent.
The women expressed their eagerness for rearing other animals to earn income.
