Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said, his government has left no stone unturned to ease lives of women. Mr Modi said this during his address at a mammoth women's meet at Thrissur in Kerala. The Prime Minister took part in the women's meet titled "Women Power with Modi" organised by the BJP at Thekkinkadu Maidan.

The Prime Minister criticized the Left Democratic Front LDF and the United Democratic Front UDF governments who ruled in Kerala for several years since independence, for depriving women from several basic facilities and rights. He accused the two fronts for their role in keeping the law providing reservation for women in Parliament and the Assembly, pending for years.

Mr Modi alleged that the LDF and the UDF were pretending to be two political groups, but are one and the same. He said, for the NDA, four categories are important - the poor, youth, farmers and  women.

The Prime Minister highlighted that the NDA goverment ensured the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam became a law of the land,

besides ending the practice of Triple Talaq. The Prime Minister also spoke about the steps taken by the government to ease the lives of women, like providing Ujjwala gas connections, toilets, sanitary pads, increasing maternity leave among other things which have benefited women the most.

Mr Modi also held a road show in Thrissur town, where people gathered in large numbers.

Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister launched and laid the foundation stone of development projects worth 1156 crore rupees at Kavaratti island in Lakshadweep. Speaking at the event, he said, the government is fully committed to ensure the sustainable development of Lakshadweep. He said, all efforts are being made by the government to bring Lakshadweep to the forefront of  the international tourism map. Noting that tourist arrival in Lakshadweep has increased five fold in recent years, the Prime Minister appealed to those embarking on tour to visit beaches abroad to first visit Lakshadweep.
