The wing,to be launched on June 10 by NCP chief Sharad Pawar,will focus on personal and collective issues of women. Issues like female foeticide,providing hostels for women at subsidised rates in the district and regional level and health issues will be given priority, RYC coordinator Minal Jagdale said.
