A 25-member delegation from the Young FICCI Ladies Organisation called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.
The delegation interacted with the Prime Minister on subjects such as women entrepreneurship, and women empowerment.
Modi responded at length to various questions raised by the delegation members. He said ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ offers great opportunities for "waste to wealth" entrepreneurship with significant benefits to community health.
Responding to a question on water conservation, the Prime Minister said all of us should individually focus on judicious use of water; and micro and drip irrigation. He said family values, acceptance of diversity and environmental consciousness are three of India’s greatest traditions which we must nurture. Subjects such as education, skill development, art and culture and women's safety also came up for discussion.
