Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 19: Within minutes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced the Women’s Reservation Bill in the Lok Sabha to grant 33 percent reservation to women in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies, social media flooded with lists of assembly constituencies to be reserved for women in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. Although there is no official confirmation of the lists posted on social media, fear gripped many senior politicians of Jammu and Kashmir because their strongholds are likely to be reserved for women.
The Bill seeks to provide a 33 percent quota for women in the Legislative Assembly of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, out of the total 90 seats 29 are likely to be reserved for women in J&K.
The erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir is the only state in the whole nation where two women members were nominated in the Legislative Assembly.
In the last Legislative Assembly elections held in the year 2014, out of 30 women contestants, who fought the 2014 Assembly elections, only two have made it to Legislative Assembly.
The women representation in the state Assembly was witnessed a decline at a time when all major contesting parties, including the NC, the Congress and the PDP, had included 33 per cent women reservation in their manifestos. Peoples Democratic Party’s Aseia Naqash and National Conference representative Shameema Firdous were the only two to make it to the Assembly this time around.
Important to mention here that the Women’s Reservation Bill that seeks to provide 33 per cent quota for women in Lok Sabha and state assemblies was introduced in the Lok Sabha today in the ongoing special session of Parliament. Calling September 19 a “historic day”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the Opposition to unanimously pass the Bill – “Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam” - that has been hanging for nearly three decades.
“On this historic occasion in the new Parliament building, as the first proceeding of the House, the beginning of all the Parliamentarians opening gateways for women power is being done with this crucial decision,” Prime Minister Modi said in Lok Sabha.
