Panjim, Sept 16 (GCNews) Congress President Rahul Gandhi has congratulated Goa Pradesh Mahila Congress on the launch of its flag.
In a letter written to Mahila Congress Committee, Goa, President Pratima Coutinho, Gandhi said, “I congratulate you on the launch of the Mahila Congress flag. The women of India have played a pivotal role in nation building. Their political participation and the path-breaking social movements for the rights of women are an important part of our history. The Congress Party has been a vibrant platform for women activists and leaders from its inception and its commitment towards the welfare and empowerment of women has seen it take the lead in introducing many progressive legislations. However, we still have a long way to go.”
“On this historic occasion, my wish is that this flag becomes a symbol of solidarity and courage for all Indian women. May this flag always remind us of our commitment to women’s empowerment and gender justice. And may this flag fill you with pride, as you boldly set out on your task to connect every Indian woman, in every village, town and city, across the length and breath of India, with the Congress party,” he said in the letter, copies of which were shared with media here.
