Opposition’s uproar
On Tuesday (September 19), the second day of the special session of Parliament, Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal presented the Women’s Reservation Bill (Nari Shakti Vandan Act) in the Parliament. During this, the opposition opposed it and asked how this bill was introduced in the House without being circulated.

OBC women should get reservation
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge said regarding the bill that OBC women should get reservation in the Nari Shakti Vandan Act. He told that the Women’s Reservation Bill had already been passed in 2010, but it was stopped.

Jairam Ramesh told the election slogan 
At the same time, Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that in this season of election slogans, this is the biggest among all the slogans. This is a huge betrayal of the hopes of crores of Indian women. As we reported earlier, the Modi government has not yet conducted the decennial census of 2021, making India the only country in the G20 that has failed to conduct the census.

Deception with women
Apart from this, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Choudhary also termed the bill as a betrayal with women. He said that the government is talking about implementing it from 2029. Why is it not being implemented from 2024?

Owaisi asked for quota for Muslim women
At the same time, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi put forward a demand before the government regarding the bill. He said that there should be a quota for Muslims and Other Backward Classes (OBC) in the Women’s Reservation Bill.
