Arjun Ram Meghwal, the minister of law and justice, stated on Wednesday that the Bharatiya Janata Party has always supported the empowerment of women. The BJP is the first political party in the nation to have decided to give 33% of party positions to women at its national convention in Vadodara. The Women’s Reservation Bill was never brought up for discussion in the Lok Sabha while the Congress was in power.
When BJP was in opposition, we kept demanding this bill from the government, but Congress, enjoying the pleasure of power, never brought the bill, Meghwal said.
On social media, Meghwal also stated that the ‘Nari Shakti Vanda’n Bill is an important step towards making India a developed India.
While addressing the Lok Sabha on the Women’s Reservation Bill, Meghwal highlighted the salient features. “…This Bill will enhance the dignity of women as well as equality of opportunities. Women will get representation.”
