External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday slammed the opposition for terming the BJP an “anti-women party” and said there are six women Cabinet Ministers in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government.
Modi’s cabinet has six women ministers, including two in the powerful Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), Swaraj said while speaking at a ‘Mahila Town Hall’ here.
Earlier, “no woman was ever a member of the CCS”, Swaraj said, adding that two of the four CCS members at present are women.
“Rivals call the Bharatiya Janata Party an anti-women party but it gave four women Chief Ministers and four women Governors as well,” said Swaraj.
She said the BJP is far ahead in political empowerment of women.
