Lucknow. BSP supremo Mayawati responded by tweeting after the women’s reservation bill was passed by both houses of the country, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. He wrote that the passage of the Women’s Reservation Bill in both the Houses of Parliament is welcome. However, he objected to depriving women of the OBC community from this.
BSP supremo Mayawati tweeted about the Women’s Reservation Bill and wrote that the Women’s Reservation Bill has been welcomed by both houses of Parliament, but the country would have welcomed it more fully if it was implemented immediately as she expected. After a long wait of almost 27 years, how reasonable is it to wait until now due to uncertainty?

Objection to non-inclusion of OBC women
BSP leader Mayawati wrote that by not including women from the OBC community, who form the majority of the country’s population, Bahujans are depriving that large section of the community of justice when it comes to reservations. Similarly, not providing separate reservation to SC and ST community women is equally unfair and denial of recognition of social justice.
Separate reservation for SC-ST women
Mayawati also wrote that where there is a will, there is a way and that is why the government should include the OBC community in this women’s reservation bill. Give separate reservation to SC and ST category women. And immediately take all measures necessary for the implementation of this bill. Ignoring women from religious minorities is also unfair.
