Led by its Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi, the DMK on Monday staged a protest march in the national capital seeking early passage of the Women’s Reservation Bill.
The Bill proposes 33 percent reservation for women in the Lok Sabha and all state legislative assemblies.
Kanimozhi, DMK LeaderIt remains a puzzle as to why the Women’s Reservation Bill has not been passed. It has been 20 years, why it has not become a law? We want to bring the focus back on the Bill because nobody is talking about it, not even the media. We call on all like-minded parties who support the Bill, to join our efforts.
Earlier on 17 March, DMK President MK Stalin wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging his intervention for the passage of the Bill.
