While talking to ANI on Tuesday, he gave his argument for the participation of more women in the governance system. She said that gender should not be a hindrance for a woman to do anything of her choice. “I want all women to know that our gender does not stop us from doing whatever we love and want to pursue,” Vanneihsangi said. This does not stop us from adopting anything. My message to every woman is that no matter what community or social class they belong to, if they want to do something, then they should do it.
