He said, “Women are contributing to nation-building like never before…adding that from healthcare missions to Digital India, Nari Shakti is propelling the growth of several national missions”. “I assure you, in our third term, we will script a new chapter on women empowerment”, he further said. Talking about the women’s achievements, Modi said, “India has the highest number of female commercial pilots in the world. In the upcoming years, there will be a huge potential for the use of drones”. During the programme, the Prime Minister released Rs. 2000 crore to Self Help Groups (SGHs) and felicitated Lakhpati Didis and distributed drones to them. He interacted with ‘Namo Drone Didis’ and witnessed the use of drones by these drone pilots for agricultural purposes. Speaking about the role of drone pilots, Modi said Women who are becoming drone pilots will have a future full of possibilities. “The way women self-help groups have expanded in India in the last 10 years is a subject of study in itself.

We have transferred an amount of Rs.10,000 crore to the accounts of Drone Didis”. Criticizing the previous government over the women’s issues, Modi said, “The erstwhile governments did not care much about the struggles of the women.
