Nari Shakti Vandan Bill: Heated Debate Between Kharge-Sitharaman

Nari Shakti Vandan Bill was presented in Parliament on Monday. On the second day of the special session, a bill providing for 33 percent reservation for women in the Lok Sabha and Legislative Assemblies was introduced in the Lok Sabha in the new Parliament House. 

During the discussion on this issue in the Rajya Sabha, there was a heated argument between Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. 

Mallikarjun Kharge raised questions on the government for not including OBC in this bill.

There was an uproar in the Rajya Sabha over Kharge’s statement on the Women’s Reservation Bill. 

He raised the issue of OBC not getting reservation in the Women’s Reservation Bill and called it injustice to the backward people. 

After his statement, there was an uproar in the Parliament.

Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that the literacy rate of Scheduled Caste women is low and that is why political parties have a habit of choosing weak women and not those who are educated and can fight. He said that they do not give us credit, but I want to bring to their notice that the Women’s Reservation Bill was already passed in 2010, but it was stopped.

On this statement of Mallikarjun Kharge, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that his statement is completely superficial.

At the same time, Union Minister of State for Electronics and IT and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajiv Chandrashekhar has described the statement of Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge on the Narishakti Vandan Act Bill as an indicator of distorted thinking towards women.

He tweeted and said – “The statement of the Leader of Opposition and Congress leader (Mallikarjun Kharge) that parties choose weak women is clearly indicative of their distorted thinking regarding Indian women, due to which the tenure of the (UPA) government will end. During this time they could not get the Women’s Reservation Bill passed and could not make it a law.”

Let us tell you that this bill will be discussed in the House on Wednesday. PM Modi has named the Women’s Reservation Bill as Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam. 

He said that this bill will strengthen democracy and women’s participation in the Lok Sabha will increase. 

There is a provision of one-third reservation for SC and ST. After discussing the Women’s Reservation Bill tomorrow, it will be passed again.

Here, Congress has termed the bill related to women’s reservation presented in the Lok Sabha as an election gimmick and said that women have been cheated, because it has been said in the bill that after the latest census and delimitation, it will be 2029.

Party general secretary Jairam Ramesh also claimed that this step of the government is ‘EVM (event management)’. 

He alleged that the government has failed to conduct the 2021 census.

Ramesh posted on ‘Has not conducted the decennial census of 2021, making India the only country in the G20 that has failed to conduct a census. It now states that reservation for women will be implemented only after the first decennial census after the enactment of the Women’s Reservation Bill. will be.” He asked when will this census be held?

According to him, “The bill also says that reservation will be effective only after the publication of the next census and the subsequent delimitation process. Will there be census and delimitation before the 2024 elections?”

“Basically this bill is in the news today with a very vague promise of its implementation date. This is nothing but EVM-event management,” the Congress leader alleged.
