Women angry over ‘non-inclusion’ of WRB in winter session of Parl

New Delhi, Dec 6 (UNI) Women activists on Wednesday expressed outrage that the Women’s Reservation Bill will miss its date in the coming winter session of Parliament as it is not listed in the agenda.
Representatives of more than 20 organisations were present at Wednesday's meeting of the National Alliance for Women’s Reservation Bill which met here to thrash out ways to intensify pressure on the present government for the swift passage of the long-pending Bill in Parliament.
Activists are now looking at face-to-face meetings with top leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi to demand the passage of the Bill.
''We have been trying to seek appointment from PMO to discuss BJP’s commitment to the passage of the Bill that they made in their election manifesto, but our requests are falling on deaf ears. The women of India stand disgusted and appalled to see the government ignoring the bill even after three and a half years of being in power,'' Dr Ranjana Kumari, Director CSR in the Alliance meeting said.
Concurring, Jyotsna Chatterjee, President and Secretary, Joint Women’s Programme reacted: ''We are fighting for the passage of the Women’s Reservation Bill for the past 21 years. And it is difficult for us to understand why the government would not table the Bill in the winter session of Parliament despite a consensus among all major parties on this issue.''
Despite consensus among all major political parties including the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, Congress, Janata Dal (United), Nationalist Congress Party, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham, Communist Party of India and Communist Party of India (Marxist), the Women’s Reservation Bill has been pending in the Lok Sabha since 2010.
