“It is really heartening that social organizations play the role of a family for such homeless girls” – Smt. Anandiben Patel

Gujarat CM Smt. Anandiben Patel today attended a marriage function of four girls of ‘Nari Sanrakshan Gruh’ and blessed the newlyweds on this occasion in Ahmedabad today in the evening.

Smt. Patel, in her speech, shared that the state government runs such Women Protection Home in almost every district where orphans and abandoned children and mothers are looked after. She added that education, health and even social responsibility like marriages are taken care of by the state government with the help of social organizations.

On this occasion, Smt. Patel shared that the organization who take responsibility of the marriage of such poor orphan girls, must collect enough information about the groom and his family. She also said that such marriages should be organized with the support of the community and should be celebrated with pomp.

She happily informed that tremendous response is seen from the groom’s family for such girls.
