After a long and strong discussion, the Lok Sabha approved the Women's Reservation Bill with 454 votes. This bill makes it so that 33 percent of the seats in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies are reserved for women. It's called the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Eighth Amendment) Bill, 2023, and it got passed after Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal gave his response.
The Bill got approved after a vote, with 454 members supporting it, and only two members opposing it when Law Minister Meghwal proposed it for passage. The changes suggested by opposition members were rejected, and there were also votes on different parts of the bill.
Speaker Om Birla declared that the Bill had been successfully passed.
This 'Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam' is the very first bill that Lok Sabha approved during its special session in the new Parliament building on Tuesday. It's a significant step forward for women's empowerment.
Asaduddin Owaisi, an AIMIM MP, explained his vote against the Women's Reservation Bill in Lok Sabha. He pointed out that while Muslim women make up 7 percent of the Indian population, their representation in the legislative body is only 0.7 percent. This highlights the concern that their political representation doesn't match their share of the population.
