The Women’s Reservation Bill, the inaugural legislation in the new Parliament building, made its debut as the 128th Constitutional Amendment Bill. Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal presented this historic bill in the Lok Sabha. Actress Kangana Ranaut has voiced her endorsement of the Women’s Reservation Bill, labeling it a remarkable initiative. She commended the Hon’ble Prime Minister, his government, and their visionary approach to uplift women in society.
The 108th Constitution Amendment Bill, popularly known as the Women’s Reservation Bill, was first introduced in 2008 and received approval in the Rajya Sabha in 2010 during the U.P.A. administration. Despite over a decade passing, the bill did not advance in the Lok Sabha. Once enacted into law, this bill will mark a significant milestone in Indian democracy. However, it’s important to note that the implementation of women’s reservation will not take effect in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
