The BJP government has stated that they will move the Women’s Reservation Bill in Lok Sabha in the winter session of the Parliament. Well and good. The same was passed in the Rajya Sabha in 2010, but both the UPA and the NDA governments did not take any interest afterwards. Left parties and the Women’s organisations have been demanding for passing the Bill early, but the government kept mum. This is a genuine demand. Let us hope that the government which has got good majority in the Lok Sabha pass it as promised.
