Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that women are proving their worth and talents in various fields all over the world, adding that women have proved that they are no less than anyone.

The thought process of society cannot be changed without gender equality. Women’s development and prosperity are part of the PTI government’s manifesto. No society can prosper without the active participation of women.

These views were expressed by the Special Assistant to CM on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan while addressing the participants of the “National Women Conference” at a local hotel here on Saturday.

Dr Firdous said the PTI government wants to end the exploitation of women in society.

She said that Fatima Jinnah remained an ardent supporter of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah throughout the freedom movement.

Likewise, today’s women have to play their role in the strengthening and reconstruction of Pakistan.

The Special Assistant said that a handful of people erect hurdles in the path of enforcement of women’s rights for self-aggrandizement by using the masculine card.

She said that political dwarfs of PML-N are at a loss to understand how the economy that they scratched and destroyed like a vulture is firmly standing on its feet.

Dr Firdous said that Imran Khan has won the hearts of the nation by presenting such an exemplary and balanced budget.

I pay my sincerest tribute to the people who faced the storm of inflation in the most difficult circumstances but remained hopeful.

The people of Pakistan know that Imran Khan is the only leader who is striving to free the country from the scourge of corruption, she said.

The current federal budget is not only an important step towards women’s empowerment but has provided relief to people from all walks of life.

The SACM said the Punjab government, under the leadership of Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, is going to present the provincial budget which will be in accordance with the welfare and aspirations of the people.

She said that she had not joined politics to loot and plunder because if she wanted this then the medical profession would have provided her ample opportunities to fill her pockets by illicit means.

“I have joined politics to raise the voice of the oppressed people on national forums”, she said. Defeat is a part of politics, SACM opined.

I rise after every fall, she said, and I have learned from my Captain to compete and keep the spirits high till the last ball.

Dr Firdous said that those who write the destiny of the nation on social media go out to celebrate holidays during the elections. I want to tell those who are trolling on social media that Dr Firdous will not back down from her goals and will achieve them at every cost.
