“ NARI TO NARAYANI BUDGET CALLS FOR WOMEN-RESERVATION IN LEGISLATURE”
New Delhi,06/07/19:First-ever full-term woman Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman deserves all compliments for presenting Union Budget for the year 2019-20 in Lok Sabha on 05.07.2019 truly in Indian style wrapped in traditional red cloth. It was indeed heart-winning when while quoting some special benefits though not of much significance, she was over-joyed pointing out to highest number of women members (78) ever in Lok Sabha cutting across party-lines quoting the budget to be - Nari to Narayani.
Political ideologies and differences apart, women Parliamentarians from TMC having sent maximum number of women in Lok Sabha have exhibited their talent in their respective maiden speeches. Women politicians in other parties especially in ruling BJP are also equally talented to deliver their best if given chance to become Parliamentarians.
Ruling BJP should give women constituting 50-percent of total population their due by legislating longest-pending Women-Reservation-Bill to provide them 33-percent reservation in legislature. Or else, Election Commission formula to make it compulsory for every political party to give at least 33-percent party-tickets to women may be immediately enforced.
