13 Opp parties attend BRS meet; Cong, TMC give it a miss

Several Opposition parties demanded the tabling of the long-pending Women’s Reservation Bill during a roundtable discussion held by Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavitha.

While the meeting had no representatives from the Congress and the TMC, leaders of SP, RJD, JMM, AAP, CPM, CPI, DMK, Shiv Sena (UBT), and RSP (Kerala) attended it.

“Standing together because we truly believe that the Women’s Reservation Bill is crucial. It is imperative for a brighter, stronger and inclusive future for India. Thanking all the parties of opposition and civil societies for joining Bharat Jagruthi’s call for tabling of the Bill,” tweeted Kavitha.

RJD Leader and MP Professor Manoj Jha, said, “We stand in solidarity with the bill…We must look for reservation within reservation…We must have a strategy whereby issues are raised in Parliament as well as outside. Mas movement on the road brings Parliament on its knees.”

“A country cannot be a superpower if the women of the country are not given their due share and respect and, most importantly, adequate representation,” said MP from the Samajwadi Party and senior party leader, ST Hassan.

Thol Tirumavalan, MP from VCK Party said, “The Women’s Reservation Bill is the need of the hour and the delay is a grave injustice towards the people of this nation.”

Kavitha had held a day-long hunger strike at Jantar Mantar over the same issue on March 10.
