Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh today said tougher laws have been enacted by the state government to give justice to women in cases of domestic violence, sexual harassment, and other cases.

Justice will be given to women in all cases relating to 'Tonhi' (witchcraft atrocities), domestic violence and sexual harassment. Tougher laws have been enacted to deal with these, he said in his sixth radio address 'Raman Ke Goth'.

"I assure mothers, sisters, and daughters the state (government) will protect their interests at any cost," he added.

He said, the government launched 'Sakhi-One-Stop Centre' last year where counselling, medical aid, legal advice, police help and others assistance are being provided to them.

Complaints related to domestic violence, molestation, dowry, acid attack, foeticide, sati, cheating, witchcraft, pension disputes, workplace harassment, property dispute, sexual exploitation and others can be filed there, he said.

The CM called upon people's representatives, social and women's organisations, sarpanches and media to spread awareness about the 'One-Stop Centre'.

He advised students to study hard and write the coming annual examination with confidence.

"Board examinations will begin on 23 February, and internal exams also in most of the schools. The results of Board examinations decide the fate of students," he added.

Recalling his own school days, Singh said, there was anxiety and excitement in him.

"Entire family feels happy if students pass with flying colours. This doesn't mean all the students will pass with distinction. Every individual has some special quality or the other, so one need not feel dejected if one does not get good marks.

"The god has sent everyone with a specific purpose. If one fails in examinations, the person concerned should put in double efforts to attain distinction," Singh added.

He urged the youth to take advantage of the Skills Development programmes being run in the state.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister informed Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Kurrubat village in Rajnandgaon district on February 21 to launch 'Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Rurban Mission' from the state.
