Kerala, Noida Metro's Unique Initiatives On Women's Day
Both Metro stations will have special facilities for women and since they are covered in pink, they can be recognised from a distance. Ritu Maheshwari, Managing Director, Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) said, “Both these stations, along with ensuring women’s empowerment, are being dedicated to women.” She also said that the NMRC is thinking about turning other stations pink soon. Meanwhile, efforts are underway in Kerala to write a new chapter on the occasion of Women’s Day. According to Loknath Behera, Director-General of Police, Kerala, all district police chiefs have been issued orders to hand over station officer duties to women police personnel on Women’s Day. KK Shailaja, Minister for Women and Child Development, said that for the first time in Kerala, on March 8, the Venad Express - from Thiruvananthapuram to Venad - will be operated completely by women. Given women’s challenging travels and journeys, this initiative by the two states to grant them both some respite and unique identity is praiseworthy.
