Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Women's day announced 'Mukhyamantri Mahila Kosh' scheme under which women who aren't married and are above the age of 50 will be given pension.
Chouhan also took the occasion to assert that any person who will misbehave with women will be hanged in public.
"I've set up a scheme 'Mukhyamantri Mahila Kosh', in which the women who aren't married and are above the age of 50 will be given pension. Any person who misbehaves with women will be hanged in public," Chouhan said.
Appreciating the contribution of women in day-to-day life, the Chief Minister said that there shouldn't be only one day to celebrate women.
"Why's there only 1 day for women? Is it possible to run a household, country or world without women for a day? No! In India we've been worshiping and respecting women since forever. Today, women hold so many important posts," he said.
