JP Nadda: PM Modi gave decisive turn to issue of women’s reservation

Women's Reservation Bill

JP Nadda

JP Nadda, the president of the BJP, noted on Thursday that Indian women are leading the way in industries like science, education, and the economy and noted that the Modi administration has made progress toward empowering women over the past nine years. The BJP chief stated during the Rajya Sabha debate on the Women’s Reservation Bill that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given the long-pending issue of women’s reservation a decisive turn by bringing a new bill to give them reservation in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies.

“I would like to thank Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modji, who finally concluded the long-discussed issue of reservation for women by means of the Nari Shakti Vandan Bill. I would also like to thank him for all the efforts he has made to empower women in the past nine years,” Nadda said.

“Be it the field of science, military, education, or economy, we are proud that Indian women have been in the leading role. It is not just the presence of the women, but the respect they are gaining in the world that tells us about their contribution across fields,” Nadda said.

“Research tells us that the sensitivity of a woman is more than a man’s, as a result of which, their capability in decision-making is better and quicker… As public figures, women are more accessible than men, and even the corruption level is lower when there is a woman representative,” he added.

Nadda said that people might have different opinions about the names in response to remarks made by Congressman Ranjeet Ranjan regarding the name of the Bill given by the BJP-led government.
