The Prime Minister noted that in the last seven years, Mahoba witnessed how the government has come out of  the closed rooms of Delhi to every nook and corner of the country. “This land has been a witness to such schemes, such decisions, which have made big and meaningful changes in the lives of poor mothers-sisters-daughters of the country”, the Prime Minister said. The Prime Minister recalled his promise of freeing the muslim women from the scurge of Triple Talaq that he made from the land of Mahoba, the promise stands fulfilled today. Ujjwala 2.0 was also launched from here.

The Prime Minister pondered how this area became a hotbed of water challenges and migration over time. He recalled the historical times when the region was known for its water management. Gradually, under the earlier governments, the region suffered massive neglect and corrupt governance. “Situation came to a point where people started shying away from marrying their daughters in this area, and daughters here started wishing for marriage in the area with surplus water. People of Mahoba, people of Bundelkhand know the answers to these questions”, the Prime Minister said.
