We are planning to open a college in every 10-kilometre range."

"Due to this coronavirus pandemic, we are celebrating this Raksha Sutra programme through this webinar. Earlier we used to organise this programme at the chief minister's residence," he added. Khattar said, during his term as the chief minister, the state government worked towards enhancing women's security in the state and tried to change the society's outlook towards women.

"I can say confidently that we have managed to change the outlook of society towards women," he said. He said, "Women have excelled in many fields and have stood out. Currently, girls in the state are doing better than boys."

While quoting a Sanskrit proverb, he said, "God resides only in places where women are respected." He further talked about the initiative taken by the state government for women empowerment.
