AAP MP Sanjay Singh Criticizes Women's Reservation Bill as "Deceptive Election Move"

In a recent development, Aam Admi Party (AAP) MP Sanjay Singh has strongly criticized the Women’s Reservation Bill, labeling it as a deceptive election tactic by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Singh expressed his concerns, stating that the bill, which has been pending for two decades, may not see implementation for another 20 to 25 years due to certain clauses.

Singh accused the BJP of being “anti-women” and accused them of using the bill as a mere electoral promise. He highlighted a particular clause that calls for a census and delimitation process before the actual reservation can be granted, further delaying the bill’s execution.

“If the BJP genuinely intends to provide 33 percent reservation for women in Parliament and state assemblies, they should implement it in the 2024 elections,” urged Singh. He went on to assert that the bill was not designed to empower women but rather to deceive them, characterizing it as an “election jumla” or empty political rhetoric.

Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal, however, sees the Women’s Reservation Bill differently. He introduced the bill for discussion in the Rajya Sabha and referred to it as a “major step.” Meghwal explained that the bill involves a Constitutional Amendment that would reserve one-third of the seats in Lok Sabha and all state assemblies for women, describing this move as significant.

The bill, officially named the ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam,’ marks a milestone as the first bill passed by the Lok Sabha during the special session in the new Parliament building. It was introduced during the inaugural session of the new Parliament building as part of the five-day Special Session of Parliament, which commenced on Monday and is set to conclude on Friday.

This dispute over the Women’s Reservation Bill reflects the ongoing debate surrounding its implementation, with AAP MP Sanjay Singh firmly opposing it while Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal sees it as a progressive legislative move. The fate of the bill and its potential impact on women’s representation in Indian politics remains a topic of contention in the country’s political landscape.
