She emphatically made it clear that while 70 to 75 of rural population was engaged in the field of agriculture but the women has major share i.e. 50 to 60 % which is hidden and never explored. It was the need of the hour that awareness is created about the empowerment of women, only then actual development of agriculture and villages will come forth.
