The PM also hailed the hanging of a rapist after a death sentence was handed to him by a fast-track court in Madhya Pradesh.

"We have to free our society and country from this disgusting mentality of rape. Recently in Madhya Pradesh a rapist was hanged by fast track court. We should spread this news and make people aware. Rule of law is supreme, no one can take law in their hands," he said.

Several other women-centric issues were also addressed by the PM in the speech. Amongst the major reforms the PM announced was allowing women to opt for permanent commission in the Indian armed forces. The PM also vowed to end the practice of Triple Talaq which he called a grave injustice to the women belonging to the Muslim community.
