He urged corporate leaders to make their corporations more economically viable so they can strengthen the government’s socio-economic empowerment narrative.

During the meeting, the Assam Prime Minister also urged the chair and members of the Women’s Commission to become proactive and travel across the state to discourage forces hostile to women’s empowerment, and to address any location in the immediate aftermath of incidents of witch hunts or harassment.
