But the key attention is, the promise of “a packet of sanitary napkin to all women form Below Poverty Lines household”. It’s a significant achievement of the the widely supported campaign #LahuKaLagaan.
Finally, a political party in India – the BJP – breaks the glass ceiling! Makes provision of means for menstrual hygiene an electoral promise.

Now we can hope for the best and expect that in similar way, at later stage this promise will be one of the promises by political parties for General Elections’. If not all, then at least of one party because it has already started making such promises.
