Jhansi: At 21, Rajni Devi is probably the youngest woman in the state to have been elected as zila panchayat member in the recently conducted panchayat polls.
Winning as an independent candidate with a margin of 5000 votes, Rajni has been elected from ward no. 6 of Baghera village, falling under Chirgaon block of the district.
Talking to mediapersons on Tuesday after receiving her certificate, she said that her priorities include education for girls in her village. “I want to work more for women in my area, especially for their education and check atrocities against them. In my village, people do not allow women to go out of their homes. I want women to know about their legal rights and fight for them. They should come out and get education”, Rajni said.
