CM announced

The CM made this announcement during the program ‘Har Sar Helmet’. He said:
“The state government has decided that all girl students should get a passport from their institutions along with their graduation degree”.

CM Khattar also distributed helmets on the day to some students. He said, “wearing helmets while driving will reduce the fatalities in road accidents”.

 

What did students say?

Kavish Mehta, a resident of Haryana said on this step: “This is a pioneering step taken towards women empowerment. This initiative of the government will help girls pursue higher education from foreign universities. It will provide them a better exposure”.

 

Women’s education is now a priority. “To make the world a better place, it is important to promote women’s participation in education and work-places. The work should begin from a ground level, making rural India aware about the utmost role ‘education’ plays”, says Shreya, a student from Bareilly, UP.

“Option to avail facilities of studying abroad, with help of the Union government, will become easier. Their dream to study in institutes abroad wouldn’t get delayed just because the passport couldn’t get ready on time. I would want every state government to consider taking the similar step to facilitate girls to take up further studies overseas”, says Reena Dhingra, a student from Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar, Haryana.

Another student Nisha Bussi adds, “The step by the government will definitely make things easier for us”.

Helmets and licenses distributed among students

Each year nearly 1.2 million people die as a result of road crashes, and millions more are injured or disabled”, states a report by the World Health Organization.

During the ‘Har Sar Helmet’ program, the state government distributed helmets and learner’s driving licenses to more than 100 students.
