5 months ago
The Union Cabinet, has granted approval for a constitutional amendment bill that proposes reservations for women in Parliament and state assemblies. This marks a historic development, with numerous prior attempts dating back to 1996 having failed. While the UPA government successfully passed the bill in the Upper House in 2010, it couldn't proceed to the Lok Sabha due to pressure from its allies. The bill's approval signals progress towards achieving gender parity in India's legislative bodies.
