INDIA TAKES A GIANT LEAP FOR EMPOWERING WOMEN

EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN – RAJYA SABHA DEBATES AND ADOPTS WOMEN BILL TODAY

BILL FOR 33% Reservation in all elected legislature positions for women placed and debated in Rajya Sabha today - Adopted overwhelmingly by the Government with the support of Opposition Parites like BJP and Left Parties

Some Political Parties opposed the Bill on the grounds of lack of reservation for Dalits and OBCs in the Bill and even attempted to physically obstruct the moving of the Bill instead of allowing the Bill and discussing for improvements and changes democratically by building a consensus

However the Bill was adopted by Voting with a thumpping majority of 191 to 1

A HISTORIC STEP – A HUGE LEAP FORWARD TOWARDS DEMOCRATISING THE WHOLE POLITICAL SYSTEM ITSELF

NFPE WELCOMES THE MOVE OF THE GOVERNMENT TO ADOPT THE WOMEN BILL IN THIS SESSION OF PARLIAMENT DESPITE OPPOSITION FROM WITHIN AND OUTSIDE UPA
