The Regional Transport Office will form a squad of women from the International Womenâ€™s Day on March 8 to listen to complaints concerning women and solve them immediately.
This was stated by Ravindra Bhuyar, Acting Regional Transport Officer, Nagpur, while addressing a function organised by Akhil Bharatiya Grahak Panchayat, Vidarbha Prant, to mark â€˜Pravasi Dinâ€™ here on Friday. Ganesh Shirole, President of the organisation, Nagpur district, presided over the function in which Gajanan Pande, Regional Organiser, Sanjay Dharmadhikari, Treasurer, and Trupti Akant, Organising Secretary, were prominently present.
Bhuyar further said that formation of women squad would encourage women to come forward for lodging complaints without hesitating to tell to women members. At present, women become shy to explain some of their complaints before men and that is why this squad is being formed. Moreover, the staff of RTO avoid checking vehicles of the women but now RTO would deploy women employees for checking the vehicles. Grahak Panchayat workers should create awareness among the women members and encourage them for solving their difficulties, Bhuyar pointed out.
In his presidential speech, Shirole said that Grahak Panchayat was thinking as to how it could become active regarding solving the stalemate of ST employees.
At the outset, the guests garlanded portrait of Swami Vivekanand and lit the traditional lamp to mark inauguration of the programme. Prakash Bhujade, Secretary, welcomed Bhuyar while Gauri Damle, Secretary of women;s executive body, conducted the function. Vinayak Abhyankar proposed a vote of thanks.
Yogita Baitule, Vilas Thosar, Arvind Hade, Shripad Hardas, Adv Vilas Bhoskar, Dr Arvind Harne, Manjiri Joshi, Suhas Ghare, Shashikant Boradkar, Dhananjay Waradkar and others were present in the programme.
