Following the protest at Jantar Mantar demanding the introduction of the Women’s Reservation Bill in the next session of Parliament, the Bharat Jagruthi will hold a round table discussion in New Delhi on Wednesday, according to K Kavitha’s office.
The round table conference will be chaired by Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLC K Kavitha and will take place between 3 and 5 p.m. at the Hotel Le Meridian in New Delhi, according to a statement.
The discussion will include representatives from various political parties, civil societies, women’s organisations, and other national organisations, according to the statement.
K Kavitha, a Bharat Rashtra Samithi MLC and Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao’s daughter, went on hunger strike at Jantar Mantar in the national capital on Friday, demanding that the Women’s Reservation Bill be introduced in the current Budget session of Parliament.
CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury was also present at the protest.
The Jantar Mantar sit-in dharna is being attended by opposition parties and women’s organisations from across India who have supported the Women’s Reservation Bill.
In a speech to a crowd, Kavitha stated that this Bill will aid in the development of the nation and asked the central government to introduce the Bill in Parliament.
“Women’s Reservation bill is important and we need to bring it soon. I promise all women this protest will not stop until the bill is introduced. This Bill will help in the development of the nation. I request the BJP-led central government to introduce this Bill in parliament,” she said.
She also thanked the BRS party leaders and cadre for extending their support to this protest.
Nearly 10 Opposition parties along with civil and women’s organisations extended their support to the cause. They vowed to fight together to realise the Women’s Resevation Bill.
