Jairam Ramesh said this about the hunger strike of Kavita
Describing the efforts of the Congress regarding the Women’s Reservation Bill, Jairam Ramesh targeted the poetry of BRS and K. According to news agency PTI, when asked about Congress not joining Kavita’s hunger strike, Ramesh told reporters, “Prime Minister in Lok Sabha since 2014 Narendra Modi has an overwhelming majority. Now they don’t have to pass it in the Rajya Sabha, where it has already been passed. BRS is supporting him most of the time. YSRCP supports him all the time so why the bill could not be passed in the Lok Sabha in the last nine years.”
She further said, “Therefore, sitting on hunger strike at Jantar Mantar to divert attention from other issues, which will become relevant tomorrow, are all diversionary tactics.” If she wants to get the bill passed, she can get it done in the budget session next week. Let us tell you that the second phase of the budget session of the Parliament will start from March 13 and will continue till April 6. K Kavita has demanded that the Women’s Reservation Bill be passed during this time.

He said the Congress has only 17 MLAs in Tamil Nadu, where they are part of the coalition government. Congress is part of the coalition government in Bihar. How many MLAs does it have there? She has won a seat in Bengal with great difficulty.
