“Why Did the Women’s Quota Bill Exist if…”: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Criticizes the Government

On Thursday, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra expressed her criticism towards the BJP-led Union government, accusing it of trivializing women’s rights. She pointed out that the recently enacted legislation, which reserves seats for women in legislatures, cannot be implemented for a period of ten years. Speaking at a rally in Mohankheda, located in the Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh, which is gearing up for elections, she questioned the government’s decision to introduce the bill if the quota couldn’t be immediately enforced.

Ms. Priyanks Gandhi stated that “The BJP-led Union government introduced the women’s reservation bill, which received support from all Opposition parties, including us. However, we later discovered that it wouldn’t be implemented for ten years, during which time a census would be conducted. In that case, what was the purpose of this announcement? It appears as though women’s rights are being taken lightly.”

She highlighted that the government would need to complete a delimitation exercise before enforcing the new Act, which reserves 33 percent of seats for women in the Lok Sabha and state legislatures, and this process would consume a decade, according to the Congress leader.

Ms. Gandhi further questioned, “If everyone is entitled to equal rights, then why isn’t a caste census being conducted? In the Bihar caste census, it was revealed that 84 percent of the population consists of OBCs and Dalits, yet these individuals are not holding government positions. When this issue is raised, the BJP remains silent.”
