Priyanka Chopra Lauds The Newly Introduced Women’s Reservation Bill: ‘Step In The Right Direction’ –

Priyanka Chopra celebrates introduction of Women’s Reservation Bill.

Priyanka Chopra hailed the new bill that would give more representation to women in the Lok Sabha.

India recently announced a path-breaking bill that will benefit the women in the coming future. The Women’s Reservation Bill, when implemented, is set to bring about a significant increase in female members of Parliament in the Lok Sabha, rising from the current 82 to 181, as announced by Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal during the bill’s introduction. As the entire nation celebrates this momentous occasion, global star Priyanka Chopra has lauded the bill by deeming it ‘a step in the right direction’.

On Sunday, Priyanka Chopra shared a snippet of a news article talking’ about the implementation of Women’s Reservation Bill. Hailing this introduction, Priyanka Chopra wrote, “Inspiring a new age with this historic milestone (National Flag emoji). The passing of the women’s reservation bill- ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam’ is indeed a step in the right direction, but the crucial next phase is its swift and effective implementation. Here’s to an India that truly supports and empowers its women!”

Take a look:

India scripted history in the newly constructed parliament as Rajya Sabha on Thursday passed the women’s reservation bill, a day after it was cleared in Lok Sabha by an overwhelming majority. The motion for the Bill, which provides for 33 percent reservation for women in the Lower House and state assemblies, was adopted in the Upper House with 215 MPs voting in its favour and none against.

The Bill, which is now on its way to the President of India, will become an Act once ratified by her and be inserted into the Constitution as a new article – 334A. The voting on the Bill in Rajya Sabha was held after an 11-hour debate even as all members, cutting across party lines, supported it even as some opposition members called it an election gimmick.

The passage of the Women’s Reservation Bill is a significant step towards ensuring equal representation for women in Indian politics, fostering a more inclusive and diverse democracy.
