New Delhi:

The Women’s Reservation Bill or Nari Shakti Vandan Adhanim is being debated in the Rajya Sabha. The bill was passed by the Lok Sabha with an overwhelming majority, after a day of heated debates in which leaders of the BJP and opposition parties came face-to-face. The opposition demanded the inclusion of Other Backward Classes (OBC) and SC/ST communities under the bill, which aims to reserve one-third seats for women in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies.

Another point of contention was the timeline for the bill’s implementation, with opposition parties scrambling to get the legislation passed before next year’s general election.
