India beats China to win crucial election to UN commission on women
UNITED NATIONS: In a significant victory, India got elected as Member of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, the principal global body focussed on gender equality and women empowerment, beating China in a hotly-contested election.
The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is a functional commission of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
The 54-member ECOSOC, holding the first plenary meeting of its 2021 session in the General Assembly Hall on Monday, held elections for two seats in the Asia-Pacific States category with Afghanistan, India and China in the fray.
Afghanistan, which is led by Ambassador Adela Raz at the UN, garnered 39 votes and India got 38 votes of the 54 ballots cast.
An irony. Indians still don't treat their own women with respect.
Another diplomatic win by a excellent team led by PM Modiji and a feather in the cap for External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his team.
Congratulations to each and every woman of India.....
If India, WINS and China LOSES on any account, I am happy.
We are proud that we got such a prestigious seat.Other side of coin we all know goons not spearing 10 months child also ..we feel shy to ready any rape news .Every women we have to respect.
