The proposed legislation is to reserve 33.3 percent seats in Parliament and state legislatures for women. It was proposed by the H D Deve Gowda-led United Front government. It provides reservation for women at each level of legislative decision-making, starting with the Lok Sabha, down to state and local legislatures.
We have already had enough of the controversies over such reservations, adding this bill as a law would result in further complications. This would only help the women of the elitist groups to gain seats, therefore causing further discrimination and under-representation to the poor and backward classes.
We have been fighting for centuries to bring equality amongst men, women and children, irrespective of caste, creed, color and nationality. In a revolution where the society is working to treat the so-called SC and STs, equal to the general candidates, don’t you think such a reservation would further deteriorate the feelings for women in a male dominated country. People have been in an impression that introducing such commandments would bring a change in the status of a woman but haven’t we criticized the pre-existing reservations so many times.
It is quite obvious, that the one who deserves would definitely be placed at the right position, whether a man, a woman, or any other such categorization. History proves that whenever, whoever has been capable enough has always led the crowd.
We must not forget that introduction of such a law would prove the women of this and the generations to come, to be dependent on such reservations and will establish that they cannot fight for their grade without a support, on their ability to make things get going.

“Woman today is no less than any man on earth”- A proclamation I can state without any queries to it. They do not need a prop up to prove their merit in any field. I, being a part of the feminine society, believe that, we give birth, nourish lives, help in progress of the generation, if we want, we can bring a revolution in the whole world and let the whole world know what we can do, which a mere reservation cannot do. My dear friends, let’s not forget, women are no more the minorities of the society.
