BRS Leader K. Kavitha Celebrates Introduction of Women’s Reservation Bill, Calls for Swift Passage in Parliament

Hyderabad | September 21, 2023: Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader and MLC K. Kavitha applauds the 128th Constitution Amendment Bill’s introduction, emphasizing its significance for gender equality. She urges the BJP-led government to pass the bill in both houses during the ongoing special session.

In a significant development for gender equality in Indian politics, K. Kavitha, leader of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and Member of the Legislative Council (MLC), has hailed the introduction of the 128th Constitution Amendment Bill. The bill, which proposes one-third reservation of seats in Parliament and State Legislatures for women, has been a long-awaited step towards ensuring equal representation for women in India’s political landscape.

K. Kavitha, who served as a Member of Parliament from 2014 to 2019, expressed her joy at the bill’s introduction and emphasized its historic significance. She highlighted that the BJP had promised this crucial legislation in its manifestos for both the 2014 and 2019 elections.

The demand for the Women’s Reservation Bill gained momentum in 2014 when the Telangana Legislature unanimously passed a resolution urging the BJP-led central government to enact this legislation. K. Kavitha, who has been a vocal advocate for women’s rights, continued to champion this cause by collaborating with opposition parties earlier this year.

In March, she undertook a one-day fast at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to support the bill and convened a roundtable discussion to foster consensus among various political parties on the need for this transformative legislation. Her relentless efforts to garner support for the bill bore fruit when the Congress party, inspired by her call, also rallied behind the cause.

Expressing her satisfaction at the bill’s tabling in the Lok Sabha, K. Kavitha remains hopeful that it will not only pass in the lower house but also receive approval from the Rajya Sabha during the ongoing parliamentary session. The introduction of this bill marks a significant step towards addressing gender disparities in Indian politics, and K. Kavitha’s tireless advocacy has played a pivotal role in pushing it closer to becoming a reality.
