AIDWA welcomes C.P.I (M) Sec's statement on Women's Reservation Bill
AIDWA welcomes the statement made by C.P I (M) General Secretary, Prakash Karat that his party will press and insist on placing of the Women's Reservation Bill in the coming Winter session of the parliament. We hope the Government will respond positively to it and ensure that the long pending Bill is placed and debated upon in the coming session of the Parliament. It may be recalled that a three day joint dharna by 10 women's organizations, led by AIDWA was recently organised before Parliament to press for the passage of the Bill. Hundreds of women from different parts of the country had gathered in Delhi to tell UPA Govt. that enough delay has already been done and that the Govt. should keep its promise to pass the above bill in the Common Minimum Programme.
