Shamima seeks implementation of 33% reservation for women in Parliament, Assembly

JAMMU: Shamima Firdous, State President Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) Women Wing and ex MLA, has asserted that there is a dire need to empower the women especially those living in Jammu and Kashmir who have witnessed and faces the worst period of terror onslaught for over three decades. She emphasized that in order to empower women the first and foremost essential in today’s scenario is the implementation of 33 per cent reservation for the weaker sex in the highest temples of democracy i.e. in the Assembly and Parliament.

The JKNC women wing leader stated this while addressing the party convention held at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhawan to discuss the issues related to women threadbare here today. She was the Chief Guest during the aforesaid convention. Today’s convention was held under the chairmanship of Satwant Dogra, Provincial President Women Wing, JKNC, Jammu. NC Provincial President Rattan Lal Gupta and senior NC leader Bimla Luthra were also present on the occasion.

Shamima Firdous said that it is really an irony the women despite playing a vital role in the society continues to be at the receiving end even in the present day world when the rapid technological strides have reduced the world to a global village. She said that the young women are today struggling amid the acute unemployment and in such a situation how can the unemployed women feel empowered.

The former MLA castigated the Union Govt as well as the J&K Administration not only for having failed to provide employment to the women folk but having plunged the weaker sex into a sea of miseries due to their misrule amid anti-people policies. Today the women across Jammu and Kashmir are facing huge problems and it is the duty of the government to address their concerns and issues at the earliest.
