DC Rajouri launches E-registration for women water conservation club
Rajouri: Rural women who are the main sufferers of the water crisis can play a pivotal role in its conservation. They walk to fetch it, sometimes travelling miles carrying plastic or earthenware pots to the nearest safe source regularly repeating the journey up to three times a day.
Keeping this in view, the District Administration Rajouri, under the chairmanship of Deputy Commissioner Rajouri, Rajesh Kumar Shavan, has decided to set up an exclusive women cell where the women could gather to discuss and deliberate upon water-related issues and grievances.
In this regard, Deputy Commissioner today launched the E-registration for Women Water Conservation Club, the nodal officer of which is the Chief Accounts Officer, Shabana Azmin with seven other executive members.
The Deputy Commissioner asked the concerned officers to disseminate the message of water conservation to the public especially the womenfolk in the rural areas as women are the most sufferers in times of water scarcity.
The Deputy Commissioner urged the women of the district to ensure their maximum registration with the club and also advised them to play a constructive role in water conservation and preservation by ensuring judicious use of this valuable gift of nature.
Among the others, Chief Account Officer, Shabana Azmin; Women Welfare Officer, Dr Anum Mirza, Administrator OSC, Nitu Sharma were also present at the official launch.
