There is a huge gap between the number of women and men in the workforce. More women participation in workforce is my dream, said Odisha Television Limited (OTV) Managing Director, Jagi Mangat Panda.

Addressing a gathering at the sixth annual function of a leading voluntary organisation, Maheswari Sangathan in Bolangir, Panda said, “Women should be encouraged in the workforce. We have a target of at least 50 per cent women in workforce. Inclusion of more women in the workforce is my dream.”
