Kavitha asks Centre to pass Women’s Reservation Bill

Nizamabad MP and Telangana Jagruthi president K. Kavitha on Thursday demanded that the Central Government pass the Women’s Reservation Bill in Parliament.

Speaking to media persons after paying floral tributes to Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s statue at Tank Bund, Kavitha said passing of Women’s Reservation Bill which provides 33% quota for women in legislative bodies would be a real tribute to Dr. Ambedkar. She said that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi would support the Centre if it introduces the Bill in Parliament.

Kavitha also announced that Telangana Jagruthi would conduct yearlong celebrations of Dr. Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary. She said a major programme would be conducted in each district every month and it would be focussed on Dalits’ welfare and women empowerment. (INN)
