There are all the talks about women reservation bill with almost all the parties supporting it.. but do they really want it to be passed? Given most of them have to leave the constituencies from where they won last time.. I don't think they do and if they vote in favor of it they will do unwillingly just cos of there respective parties stand on this matter. But for that also first voting has to take place which too seems unlikely as pet vote bank of congress also isn't in favor of this bill and they can't risk it..

I can see why the bill would be questionable based on the fact that they feel the "lower class" women would not have a chance to run for the seats available to the women. I do think that it would offer more citizens more rights though. I think that the women elected would represent the women in the community but women can be hard. They can be more judgemental than men sometimes and are often set in their ways. Keep that in mind when considering the bill.

I am against the womens reservation bill. It is true that women find little representation if the houses. But a move like resevation is again putting this country of life support instead of ridding it of its ills. We need to find out why there are so few women in politics and do something to change that. This move also undermines the democratic process. We cannot make the election of certain group or community mandatory in a democracy.
