Women’s Reservation Bill passed by the Rajya Sabha


The women’s reservation bill was passed by the Rajya Sabha on Thursday in the special session of Parliament. It was a historic moment for India as this bill gives women 33 % reservation in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was seen posing for pictures with the women MPs in the new building. Sweets were distributed by women members and a huge bouquet was presented to PM Modi. Though this initiative was planned years ago, it tasted success only on Thursday after the bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha. It got unanimous support from members with no abstention and only 2 negative votes. The bill was passed in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
PM Modi said that it is a ”defining moment ” in the nation’s democratic journey.
However, this can be implemented after a census and delimitation exercise which will make it happen only in 2029 or beyond.
