On her first formal visit after her recent elevation to the post, Grewal said here last night that she was holding district level meetings to galvanise women workers for the coming municipal polls and also to have a feedback.

"I have already held such meetings in nine districts and will be holding these in other districts in coming days. The district and state-level office bearers will be announced by January 31 next after completing series of these meetings," she said.
Expressing concern over the alleged rise in crimes against women during the NDA and Punjab government rules, Grewal cited the recent rape cases in Delhi where a 27-year-old woman executive was allegedly by a cabbie contracted by the  US-based Uber and in Ludhiana, where the victim was set ablaze after the crime.
She flayed the NDA ministers for "brazenly supporting" Uber cab company instead of taking action against it. Mahila Congress won't take such incidents but hold protests, she said.
