लिंग निर्धारण को मान्यता देने की बात में कुछ खास लोंगों का इसमें स्वार्थ निहित है. अस्पताल में प्रसव बढ़ाने के नाम पर यह कदम महिलाओं के लिये जनसंहार साबित होगा.
इसलिए भारतीय राष्ट्रीय महिला फेडरेशन इस बयान को और इस तरह का कोई भी कदम को तुरंत वापस लेने की मांग करती है.
The National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) strongly condemn the statement of Women and Child Development Minister Smt. Maneka Gandhi on making sex determination mandatory.
This is a very retrograde position and will lead to increase in female foeticide in the country.. The PC PNDT has been brought through numerous struggles by Indian women and their organisations to stop sex determination due to a patriarchal mind set. The Minister must make all effort to see that the implementation of this Act is done properly. The women who work as ASHA must be given worker status and all the benefits as workers, not as volunteers
The move to make sex determination is nothing but a ploy to serve vested interest in the country. In the name of increasing hospital deliveries, this move will result in genocide of women.
NFIW therefore demand immediate withdrawal of this statement and any such move by the government in this regard.
