For years, Women’s reservation bill has been not floored at the Parliament. Many governments have promised to bring 33% reservation to women in government jobs to increase their representation. PM Narendra Modi has promised to bring the Women’s reservation bill, this term. In the first special session at New Parliament, Indian government has decided to bring this monumental bill to the floor. Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal introduced Women’s reservation bill in Lok Sabha on 19th September. Government has given the bill, title, “Nari Shakti Vandan Abhiniyam.”
After 7 hours of deliberation and 60 MPs verbal recommendations about the bill, Lok Sabha has gone for voting. A total of 456 members have participated in the voting at Lok Sabha for Women’s reservation bill. The voting and counting has been done in Manual way. Except for 2 MPs and Congress MPs, rest all voted in “Aye” for the bill. Congress MP Sonia Gandhi has asked for Caste Census to be completed as soon as possible. She also stated that NDA has brought incomplete and incoherent Women’s reservation bill for mileage in next elections.
As the monumental bill passed in Lok Sabha, it will go to Rajya Sabha, on 21st September. Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, stated that Women’s reservation bill won’t come into action for next elections. Also, he stated that post general elections, delimitation process will be completed along with Census. He stated that OBC reservation quota will not be effected and upon necessity, changes can be made in the law. Well, 20th September, becomes a monumental day for India as long awaited Women’s reservation bill has finally crossed first hurdle.
