PM Modi to receive rousing welcome at BJP headquarters post Women’s Reservation Bill clearance by Parliament
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will receive a rousing welcome at the BJP headquarters in the national capital today (September 22). PM will be welcomed by women party workers (mahila morcha members) and leaders at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) central office extension in Delhi, a day after Parliament passed the ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam’ (Women’s Reservation Bill) in both houses of the Parliament.
Women’s Reservation Bill which cleared its final legislative hurdle at the Rajya Sabha guarantees 33 per cent reservation for women in the Lok Sabha as well as the state legislative assemblies.
BJP workers celebrated outside party office following the passing of the Women’s Reservation Bill. A woman said, “The Bill was awaited for 27 years. A historic era has begun. The Bill was passed in a golden era. It is a big day for women”.
Several artists played musical instruments outside the BJP headquarters as celebrations continued following the passing of the Women’s Reservation Bill.
A day after it was cleared in the Lok Sabha, the Upper House on Thursday passed the women’s reservation bill, aptly titled Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam, unanimously with 214 members voting in support and none against. Following the passage of the bill, both Houses of Parliament were adjourned sine die.
Meanwhile, women MPs took turns to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the passage of the draft legislation. Women members from both Houses of Parliament were all smiles as they presented a bouquet to Prime Minister Modi on the historic passage of the Bill in Parliament.
