AIDWA condemns NDA govt's move to dismiss the heads, and members of autonomous institutions
Women's right group AIDWA has condemned Narendra Modi-led Government's act of easing out the heads of various institutions, including the Chairperson of the National Commission for Women. AIDWA termed this as an undemocratic act which thoroughly exposes the intention of the BJP to bring all structures within its political power.

AIDWA said that similar measures were adopted by the Congress Government also when in power. The rights group condemned this approach, saying it undermines the autonomous character of many important institutions, and seeks to subjugate them to the interests of the ruling Government.

AIDWA in a statement said, “It points out that such a step also violates the spirit of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s frequently quoted slogan for 'minimum government and maximum governance'. The day the new PM took over, he has been engaged in centralizing the powers of the PMO by bringing around him in important posts only those people who are likely to carry out his commands unquestioningly. This was evident in the manner in which the principal cabinet secretary was appointed.”

AIDWA added, “A few days back, the Modi Government started making precipitous efforts to remove the Governors appointed by the UPA government in various states. And the untimely overhauling of the National Commission for Women is also being contemplated.”
