The AIADMK IT Wing has launched the first-of-its-kind women safety application in Tamil Nadu. The app is called 'Ammavin Aran' meaning 'mother's fortress'.
The app will give the user details about the nearest police station and hospital along with map details and phone number. There is an in-built whistle, which can manipulate the phone speaker to create a loud noise when pressed by anyone in distress.
Also, the app carries an in-built call recorder and and 'Tips' icon to provide life saving information.
"The app was launched as a part of Women's Day celebration. Our leader Jayalalithaa, who passed away in December, always gave extreme importance to women safety and security. As a tribute to her, we have launched this new app which would be very useful to women of Tamil Nadu women," Raj Satyen, AIADMK IT Wing Secretary said.
The women safety app was officially launched by the party's Deputy General Secretary TTV Dhinakaran.
Though Tamil Nadu is considered as a safe haven for women and as a State providing necessary safety and security to them, incidents like Infosys techie Swathi's murder and the assault of Nandhini and Haasini has brought in the necessity for such apps.
