Menstrual Hygiene Day was celebrated across the globe on 28 May. Everybody should be aware of the need of sanitary napkins irrespective of gender. There is an uproar in the city as sanitary napkins are set to be taxed at 12% under GST regime. This decision is deemed irrational by all and sundry.
In regard with this women wing of Nationalist Congress Party started a campaign in order to make sanitary napkins tax-free. A signature campaign was organized on Monday at Churchgate station. The campaign received huge footfall. NCP's women wing President, Chitra Wagh stated that sanitary napkins should be completely exempted because they are very important for women's health.
