New Delhi: Minister of State (MoS) for Human Resource Development (HRD), Shashi Tharoor on Sunday raised concern over women education, safety and empowerment and emphasised on the need to change the mentality of people in order to bring a positive change in the country.
Tharoor was speaking here in a conference on 'women empowerment', organised by a private educational institution.
"We will have to change our mentality towards women, as without changing the mentality the country can't progress. Women comprise 50 percent of the total population, but we don't give them equal rights and security to live freely. This should happen and for that mentality should have to be changed," said Tharoor.
