BJP women’s wing to hold Gwalior-Delhi marathon tomorrow

Thursday, 11 October 2018 | PNS | New Delhi

To mark the centenary year celebrations of Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia, BJP women's wing will organise a five-day relay marathon from Gwalior to Delhi, starting October 12.

"The Women's Empowerment Race (Mahila Shashaktikaran Daud) will pass through five States — Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi. It will highlight how Narendra Modi Government has empowered Indian women through its various path-breaking initiatives and programmes. This mega event will be a tribute to Rajmata, our first women wing chief, whose 100 birth anniversary is being celebrated across India," said BJP women wing president Vijaya Rahatkar.

Sharing details about the relay Marathon, Rahatkar said it will be flagged off from Gwalior, the home of Rajmata, by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the presence of senior leaders. "It will end in Delhi on October 16 when BJP President Amit Shah will receive it at a grand function to be held at Talkatora stadium," Rahatkar said.

Apart from 100 BJP women wing workers who will take part in the 375-km-long relay Marathon, some important celebrities will take part to highlight various pro-women initiatives taken by Modi Government.

Rahatkar further said the race is also women wing's tribute to its first chief Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia. "It is for the first time such an event is being organised by women's wing to honour one of the great women leaders of India," she added.
