Modi focuses on women's empowerment, education
Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday stressed on the need for women's empowerment in the present-day world as he began the fourth day of his visit to Japan.
Modi, who was addressing students of the Sacred Hearts University here, said he has always given a lot of importance to girl child education.
"As a Gujarat chief minister, I dedicated myself to help educate the girl child in the state," Modi stated in a message posted on the PMO twitter account.
The Indian prime minister added that he spent $180 million for girl child education.
He also noted that the Indian Constitution framework seeks to integrate women in the decision making process.
"Our current cabinet has 25 percent women, even our external affairs minister is a woman," he said.
Later in the day, Modi will call on Japanese Emperor Akihito and leaders from across the political spectrum of Japan.
