“In August, we have Raksha Bandhan, we can begin a mass movement to ensure that all women and sisters of our country get all security scheme benefits before Raksha Bandhan,” the prime minister said in his monthly ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio address.

“Whether it is a woman working as a maid in our house, or in our fields, or whether they are our own sisters, we can ensure that they avail the social security schemes,” he said.

Rakshan Bandhan is an Indian festival which celebrates the brother-sister bond. As a symbol of that bond, a sister ties a coloured thread on her brother’s wrist, and he pledges to help and protect her in times of her need.(IANS)
