Priyanka Chaturvedi, the leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT), said on Tuesday that more clarification is required for the Women’s Reservation Bill.
“Being a woman, I would say that the biggest problem women face is that of ‘character assassination’. I hope that this bill will wipe away such a mentality. The male-dominated society should remember that women too are a part of it,” she said, adding, “I believe that this bill should be implemented soon. Women should be elected in the 2024 general assembly election, and they should play roles in the development of the country.”
According to sources, the Women’s Reservation Bill was approved by the Union Cabinet on Monday. The Union Cabinet meeting took place in Delhi’s Parliament House Annexe. The bill is anticipated to be introduced in the Lok Sabha on the second day of the special session in the new Parliament building after being approved by the Union Cabinet on Monday. Mahua Maji, an MP for the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), welcomed the Women’s Reservation Bill but added that the government should also consider the rights of Schedule Tribe and Scheduled Castes since they have long demanded the implementation of the women’s reservation.
