“India’s great democracy has become proud in the true sense,” the chief minister Yogi Adityanath said on his X account. The ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Act’, which was introduced in the Lok Sabha by revered Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, is a historic step toward the empowerment of women. “Hearty congrats to the entire mother power!”
Building a “developed India” will be greatly aided by this historic choice to grant the rights due to half the population of the nation. This will also strengthen and increase participation in Indian democracy. Thank you very much, Mr. Prime Minister,” he continued.
Earlier in the day, during the maiden Lok Sabha meeting held in the new Parliament building, Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal tabled the Women Reservation Bill. The legislation is referred to as “Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam.”
The Minister stated when introducing the Bill in the House, “This Bill is related to women’s empowerment. The National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi would reserve 33% of seats for women by amending Article 239AA of the Constitution. Reservations for SC/ST seats in the House of the People under Article 330A.
Arjun Meghwal predicted that after the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam is approved, there will be 181 seats in the Lok Sabha reserved for women. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday that it is essential for women to participate in policymaking and urged Rajya Sabha members to pass the bill, “Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam,” unanimously when it comes before the House. He also assured women that the government is committed to passing this bill into law.
A bill was presented in the Lok Sabha today. It’ll arrive here as well after discussion. PM Modi stated in the Rajya Sabha that “today we are taking an important step towards women’s empowerment.” After the Rajya Sabha passed the Women’s Reservation Bill in 2010, the lower House of Parliament did not take it up and it expired.
