Minister distributes sweets
As he distributed the sweets, he asked Kangana, “Sansad mein pehli baar (Are you visiting the Parliament for the first time)?” Kangana responded with a prompt “Yes sir.” Praising the prime minister, she later told ANI, “The first session of the new Parliament has been dedicated to women empowerment and upliftment. This is a big statement that the ruling party and our prime minister have made. He could have chosen any topic, but he decided to prioritise women, girl child, and young and old women. PM Modi has kept women as the priority…This is fantastic.”
