Safety Is The Best Gift To A Woman: Subroto Bagchi

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Ltd (OPTCL) celebrated International Women’s Day today at Krushi Bhawan.

The programme was graced by Subroto Bagchi, Chairman, Odisha Skill Development Authority, and Saurabh Garg, Chairman, OPTCL & GRIDCO.

An impromptu talk with Bagchi was organized to motivate the female employees of OPTCL.

In reply to various questions asked during the impromptu talk, Bagchi advised the female employees not to get guilt trapped.

Bagchi said that any responsibility of the home should be equally shared by both the partners and they should perform well in their professional life also.

“Be it exam score of the children or their health, women employees have sacrificed their career. This should not be. Women employees can also lead an organization. They should be part of the decision-making and in the board room. The best gift that can be given to a woman to please her is safety,” said Bagchi in his talk.

“OPTCL is one of the rare PSUs which is having good strength of female employees working both at filed and office. It is indeed a matter of pride that female engineers are showing interest to work in Power Sector. It proves, there is no specific set of job roles for women. They can equally compete with their male counterparts. It should be praised that in OPTCL female engineers are doing shift duty irrespective of time.” said Garg in his address to the gathering.
