Sir, adolescent girls do not feel comfortable to attend school during the period of their menstruation. Girl students mostly use home-made napkins in rural and suburban areas, which makes it even more inconvenient for them to lead a normal social life.

Being an MP, I provide funds from my MPLAD fund for installation of vending and incinerator machine for girls’ and co-education schools so that girls can avail facilities during their time of need.

I would like to request the Hon’ble HRD Minister so that they can take up my issue of installation of vending and incinerator machines in co-education schools and girls’ schools.
