The Chhattisgarh government's Sanchar Kranti Yojana, which entails giving free smartphones to 45 lakh women and 5 lakh students, is a crucial step to empower them, Chief Minister Raman Singh said
Raman Singh dedicated 556 new mobile towers installed across the state and also launched a mobile app titled "Goth" which will be pre-installed on these smartphones. People of the state could know about government schemes, policies as well as cultural programmes through this app, informed Raman Singh
Kangana Ranaut, who was present on the occasion and distributed phones to beneficiaries, hailed Singh for SKY and called it a "one of a kind" project which was the outcome of his farsightedness. She said that women comprised half the population of the country and empowering them was necessary
