The Congress president shot off letters to main ministers of Congress and alliance governments, urging them to pass a resolution in search of a single-3rd quota for ladies in Lok Sabha and state assemblies. He reported the resolution really should be passed in the up coming session of the assembly, underlining that very similar motions have previously been adopted by Odisha and Andhra Pradesh assemblies.
In the letter dated December 6, Rahul reported India rated 148 out of 193 countries in terms of proportion of gals in Parliament and the situation was “even even worse in condition assemblies”.
“The lack of ample illustration of women in our polity undermines our democracy and perpetuates current systemic injustices. Females in institutions of community self-governance have not only been successful leaders but also challenged conventional gender roles that curtailed their participation in general public everyday living,” he wrote.
