Leaders are urging for the introduction of the women’s reservation bill, which guarantees a 33% quota in Lok Sabha and state assemblies. Women’s reservation legislation was passed by the Union Cabinet on Monday, according to Minister of State Prahlad Singh Patel.
“Only the Modi government had the moral fortitude to comply with the demand for women’s reservation, as seen by the cabinet’s assent. Congratulations to the Modi government as well as to Narendra Modi, the minister remarked on X.
Patel is the state’s minister of state for Jal Shakti and the food processing industries. Following the first session of the five-day special session of Parliament, the Union Cabinet convened this evening.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi presided over a lengthy Cabinet meeting that lasted more than 90 minutes. Leaders have called for the introduction of the women’s reservation law, which ensures a 33% quota in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies, notwithstanding political differences.
A 33% reservation for women in the Lok Sabha and state legislatures was included in the Women’s Reservation Bill, which the Rajya Sabha approved in 2010. The Prime Minister previously told the media that “historic decisions” would be made during this Parliament session, even though it might be brief.
Union ministers Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah, Piyush Goyal, Pralhad Joshi, S. Jaishankar, Nirmala Sitharaman, Dharmendra Pradhan, Nitin Gadkari, and Arjun Ram Meghwal were among those present during the cabinet meeting.
The women’s reservation bill has been a subject of discussion ever since it was revealed that the Parliament session would take place from September 18–22. He said that the contribution of female lawmakers has increased over time in his remarks in Lok Sabha during the discussion on 75 years of Parliament.
Jairam Ramesh, the spokesperson for the Congress, applauded the “reported decision” of the Union Cabinet. The Congress party has long called for the implementation of women’s reservations.
“We appreciate the reported Union Cabinet decision and are looking forward to the Bill’s specifics. Ramesh remarked on X that rather than functioning in secrecy, this could have very well been discussed in the all-party meeting prior to the Special Session and consensus could have been developed.
