Women Reservation Bill: On Tuesday, the second day of the special session of Parliament, the Women’s Reservation Bill (Nari Shakti Vandan Act) was introduced in the Lok Sabha. After this, on this issue in the Rajya Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to all the parties to come together on the Women’s Reservation Bill. PM Modi said that a unanimous decision should be taken on the bill related to women empowerment. After PM Modi’s speech in the new Parliament, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge was given a chance to speak. While discussing this bill, he said that Dalit and backward caste women do not get opportunities.
On this statement of Kharge, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman got angry and the ruling party started creating ruckus. The Finance Minister said that the President of the country is a woman coming from the tribal community. While targeting Khadke’s statement, he said that in the Congress Party of which you are the President, only a woman has been the President for many years.
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge gave this statement
Congress President in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that OBC women should get reservation in the Nari Shakti Vandan Act (Women’s Reservation Bill). It was only after his statement that the ruling party started an uproar in the Rajya Sabha. He said that MPs come after getting elected. Dalit and backward caste women are not that educated. Their literacy is also very low.
BJP expressed objection to Kharge’s statement
BJP has expressed objection to this statement of Kharge. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that it is wrong to say that the party does not give importance to women. He said that the party gave a chance to all of us. I lodge an objection. The Finance Minister said who is the President? You can’t say that, how can you differentiate between two women. We are talking about reservation for all women.
