TRS leader calls for more political will for women's quota

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

Samiti leader K Thursday raised the pitch for women's reservation, calling for more political will to realise the objective speedily.

"If the Women's Reservation Bill could be passed with the same speed with which the bill on economically weaker sections/general category reservations has been passed in both the houses, our country would be truly progressive", she said.

"We need more political will behind reservation for women," added Kavitha, the member and daughter of TRS supremo and K Chandrasekhar Rao, on twitter.

The Parliament had on Wednesday passed the Constitutional Amendment bill guaranteeing 10 per cent quota in education and employment to economically weaker sections in the general category.

The nod came a day after the Lok Sabha approved it on Tuesday.
