After Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha passes women's reservation bill with 214 votes in favour, 0 against

IndiaTimes Thursday, 21 September 2023
The Rajya Sabha has passed the women's reservation bill, which proposes to give 33% reservation to women in the lower house and legislative assemblies. The bill was also cleared in the Lok Sabha with overwhelming support. However, the opposition's demands for immediate implementation, quota for OBCs and Muslims, and a caste-wise headcount were not accepted. The proposed law can only be enforced after the census and delimitation exercise, which is set to happen after the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

LS Polls 2024: Congress manifesto launch | Priyanka Gandhi, Kharge slam BJP, Modi | Oneindia News

Top Congress leaders, including the party president Mallikarjun Kharge, former president Sonia Gandhi, held a rally in Jaipur on Saturday, April 6, to publicly launch its election manifesto 'Nyay Patra'. The Jaipur public rally comes a day after the Congress released its manifesto for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls promising a legal guarantee for MSP, and passing a constitutional amendment to raise the 50 per cent cap on reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs among others. The release of the manifesto 'Nyay Patra' was announced by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, expressing happiness and pride in her mother Sonia Gandhi's presence in Rajasthan after becoming a member of the Rajya Sabha. Unemployment, claimed to be at its peak, was criticised, with allegations made against the BJP and Modi government for failing to address the issue adequately. The Agniveer scheme, accused of shattering people's hopes, was mentioned, along with concerns raised about leaked papers in various states and the ongoing protests by farmers, suggesting that PM Modi is unwilling to heed their grievances.
