District Administration dedicates two main Chowks under Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign in Ferozepur
Ferozepur, July 11, 2019: As a major facelift to the entry of border district, the district administration has dedicated two main Chowks symbolic to Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign on the highway with installation of bronze statues of Mother-Daughter and grown-up daughter reading the books.
Both the Chowks were inaugurated by MLA Mr. Parminder Singh Pinki and Deputy commissioner Chander Gaind by unveiling the statues. The first statue has been set up at the entry point to Ferozepur at Chungi Number 7 which is exhibiting a daughter in the hands of mother named as Maa-Beti Chowk while the second one at Sher Shah Wali crossing with statue of grown up daughter reading a book with a heap of books.
It is the concept of the Deputy Commissioner Chander Gaind who has a passion to give a face-lift to the city by beautifying the entry points to the city of martyrs.
Both statues are parts of a single theme i.e. the relationship of love and compassion between mother-daughter at the first crossing and in the next crossing the same daughter shown as grown up daughter turned into a intelligent student with heaps of book beside her.
MLA Mr. Parminder Singh Pinki said that both the statues speak about the mother-daughter bonding, women empowerment and a message of educating the girls, which depicts the women's importance in the society, thus given the name as Saksham Chowk.
Speaking on the occasion, Gaind said that efforts were being made from the day one of his joining for beautification of the city without causing any burden on government exchequer, which has been done with the help of the non-government organizations. He said that both these Chowks will prove to be iconic landmarks of the city besides giving a message of important place of daughters in our society.
Gaind said that daughters are not less than sons now a day as they have attained distinctions in every field and brought laurels to their parents.
