A view of sports competition of grassroots women
Speakers also said women participation not ensured due to lack of national policy for women for last 10 years. As a result many elected women representative in the local government have to fights to establish their rights at the streets. Peoples elected representatives are not able to perform their duties properly and human rights violation exists at local level. Besides a vested religious group trying to claim the issues NWDP is anti-Islamic and try to raise boiled the political field uses to religious sentiment, which is not fair. Speakers urge the people raise voices and social protest to this.
