New Delhi:

President Ram Nath Kovind asked the nation on Saturday to reaffirm the pledge to ensure safety and respect for women on the eve of International Women's Day. Taking to Twitter, the President wrote: “On International Women's Day greetings and best wishes to women in India and across our planet. This day is an occasion to celebrate the untiring efforts and crucial role of women in building a better society, nation and world.”

“Let us reaffirm our pledge to ensure safety and respect for women, so that they can move forward unhindered according to their wish in the direction of fulfilling their hopes and aspirations,” he added.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had extended his wishes to the women of India. While hailing their contribution in different fields, PM Modi said woman power is securing the country and that he has been getting many motivating stories on exceptional women achievers.

“Inspiring women entrepreneurs. Nari Shakti securing India. Women excelling in sports and leadership. Women farmers showing the way. Been getting many motivating stories on exceptional women achievers. Do keep sharing more such life journeys! #SheInspiresUs (sic),” PM Modi had tweeted.

PM Modi had earlier this week said that he will be handing over his social media accounts to ‘women who inspire’, to mark Women’s Day on March 8.

“This Women’s Day (March 8), I will give away my social media accounts to women whose life & work inspire us. This will help them ignite motivation in millions,” he had tweeted.
