The All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA) Central committee meeting will be organised in the city from June 29.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, AIDWA State secretary Swaroopa Rani said the central committee meets every three months to discuss and chalk out action plan on issues concerning women and nation. The three-day meeting scheduled in the city will be attended by about 100 members from 24 to 25 States across the country.
The meeting would deliberate issues, including fall in sex ratio, women reservation bill, inflation, food security, and sexual harassment at work place. The government has not been taking any steps or providing any incentives to encourage girl child.
The sex ratio in Chityala mandal is worrying factor. It was the lowest in the State. The AIDWA would take up a survey in Chityal and other mandals, she said.
Referring to Women's Reservation Bill, she said the Bill was passed in Rajya Sabha twice. It, however, was not placed in Lok Sabha to make it Act. Another major issue concerning women was excessive dependence on Excise by the State governments.
The AIDWA wanted the Central government to formulate a uniform policy for entire country. The food security and inflation were other major issues, she said.
AIDWA district secretary Pinnamaneni Viaya, city secretary K. Sridevi, and president K. Saroja were present.
