HAMARA CONGRESS RECOMMENDS 20% FOR 20 YEARS ON WOMEN’S RESERVATION BILL

By Sanjay Jha

As has already been stated in an earlier article by the author on the Women’s Reservation Bill, the Bill should have ideally a fixed quota of only 20 %. Secondly, it should be time-bound to a maximum of 20 years and then de-reserved as two decades is a long time to ameliorate and emancipate the social and working conditions of women in a structured and focused initiative to be undertaken by women Lok Sabha representatives from different political parties , which is a significant percentage. Keeping any reservation policy in an interminable zone or in perpetuity is senseless as over a period of time it creates the very inequity it is meant to correct.

What is your view?

  1. I feel 20% is a reasonable figure. In order to achieve success, parties will nominate atleast 20% ladies as candidate, overall representation in Parliament may reach upto 33%. Moreover, too much reservation will lead to proxy power centers. 20% figure is likely to represented by able women candidates.
