Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday had the opportunity to see the first ever all-women Armed Battallion of Bihar at a passing parade at the Gandhi Maidan.

Carrying rifles in their hands and marching in lock steps, the women looked fit and ready to take up even the most difficult tasks in the law-enforcement area.

Visibly elated to see one of his dreams turn into reality, Kumar said that it is impossible to think that women are inferior to men.

It is clear that they are capable of doing everything and yet we sometime forget that fact and start discriminating against them. This should not happen either inside one's home or in the world outside," the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister further said that there were 580 members of the All Women Armed Battallion out of which 44 had post-graduate degrees.

"We will put these women in important positions where the society would benefit from their courage and experiences," he said adding when he had mooted the idea of an All Women Armed Battallion six years ago, people had expressed their doubts of its success.

"Skeptics had mocked the idea of giving bicycles to girl students in villages saying it would only encourage eve-teasing. Today everyone acknowledges the success of the bicycle scheme. The All Women Armed Battallion would also prove to be a huge success," the Chief Minister declared.
