Implement Women’s Bill immediately: Alka Lamba
Jaipur: Congress leader Alka Lamba on Monday demanded immediate implementation of the women’s reservation bill by removing the condition that it would come into effect after the population census and the delimitation of parliamentary and assembly constituencies.
Addressing a press conference here, she said a delegation of women had met PM Modi in 2017 to press for reservation for women in Lok Sabha and state assemblies, but nothing much happened even after so many years as the Centre put the conditions of census and delimitation in the bill passed by Parliament last week.
“It is our demand that the women’s reservation bill that has been passed recently should be implemented from the 2024 elections. Whatever hurdles have been put by the BJP govt that first census will happen then delimitation will be done and then reservation be given, we want these conditions to be removed. We want the bill to be implemented immediately,” Lamba said. She said none of the 25 MPs elected from Rajasthan did not demand the bill’s immediate implementation.
