Panthers women wing held demonstration for 1/3rd reservation

Jammu, Dec 26 (UNI) Women wing of Jammu & Kashmir Panthers Party held a demonstration today seeking delimitation and 33 per cent reservation for women in Assembly constituencies.
Reminding the ruling BJP of its ‘Vision Document’ released during 2014 assembly elections, the Panthers Mahila wing led by Manju Singh held a demonstration at Exhibition Ground Jammu seeking early delimitation of Assembly constituencies and reservation of 33 per cent seats for women in State Assembly.
The protesters while raising slogans against BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the J&K government, took out a procession from Dogra Chowk which was restrained by the Police at Tawi Bridge from proceeding further.
Addressing the gathering, Ms Singh said,''assurances for delimitation and for ending regional bias were not only doled out by the central BJP leadership but the BJP’s vision document also categorically promised early delimitation of Assembly constituencies so as to ensure justice to Jammu region with 33 per cent seats reserved for women, five seats for displaced people of Pakistan occupied Kashmir out of 24 seats reserved for them in the state constitution and three seats for Kashmir migrants.''
Kesar Parveen Advocate and General Secretary Mahila Panthers said while women had been granted such reservation in Urban Local Bodies and Panchayats, it was highly unjust to deprive them of the said facility in Assembly.
