Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has launched a programme for women self-help groups at Thano near here which will train them in making LED lights.


The Chief Minister said the five-day programme named LED Gram Light Training programme will train 50 women from 10 SHGS in making LED bulbs, tubelights and chandeliers and help them stand on their own feet.

If women become self-dependent, they will automatically be empowered, Rawat said assuring the women of making proper arrangement for the marketing of their products once they are ready.

It will not only help women stand on their feet and generate revenue for the state by boosting sale of local products but will also help stop sale of Chinese items of home decor, Rawat said.

Energy secretary Radhika Jha welcomed the initiative saying it will generate self-employment opportunities for women in rural areas.
