In a momentous stride towards women’s empowerment in India, Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya has lauded the Union Cabinet’s approval of the ‘Nari Shakti Vandan’ Act. This significant legislation, endorsed under the guidance of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, aims to revolutionize gender representation in the country’s political landscape.
A Historic Step for Women’s Empowerment
Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya, while expressing his enthusiasm for the ‘Nari Shakti Vandan’ Act, described it as a historic step taken by the Central Government to empower women across the nation. The bill’s core provision is the reservation of 33% of seats for women in both the Lok Sabha and State Legislative Assemblies, thereby addressing gender disparities in the political sphere.
Paving the Way for a Developed and Prosperous India
Keshav Prasad Maurya further emphasized the transformative potential of this legislation in shaping a more developed and prosperous India. By providing a more equitable platform for women to participate in the highest decision-making bodies of the country, the ‘Nari Shakti Vandan’ Act seeks to harness the full potential of half of India’s population.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Leadership
Under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, this significant initiative reflects the government’s unwavering commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment. By advocating for increased female representation in the political landscape, the government aims to create a more inclusive and representative democracy.
Addressing Gender Disparities
The ‘Nari Shakti Vandan’ Act addresses long-standing gender disparities in political representation. Historically, women in India have been underrepresented in legislative bodies, despite their significant contributions to various sectors of society. This legislation aims to rectify this imbalance and ensure that women’s voices are heard and their concerns addressed in the highest echelons of government.
