SRINAGAR : National Conference (NC) vice president Omar Abdullah stated on Tuesday that the party is not opposed to the Women Reservation Bill and has no issues if it is put into effect. When did we oppose women’s reservations? It was put into practise by us personally in panchayats and other places. We support women’s rights because they make up 50% of our population and should have the opportunity to serve as elected officials. Abdullah told reporters in Budgam, “We don’t oppose to this. Abdullah responded that the party does not lack qualified female leaders when asked if it will affect the party’s prospects in J&K. “What effect will it have? Do you believe there won’t be any women running for the designated seats at the polls? There are plenty of female candidates throughout the NC. We have a women’s wing, and they are fighting tooth and nail. “No bill will have any effect on us.” Only because our leaders here are afraid of the polls do we suffer. They are now kings without a crown. They are not interested in holding the election. He made apparent allusion to the Centre-imposed LG government when he added, “The risk is from people who are fleeing elections. The women’s reservation bill, which would provide women a third of the seats in the Lower House of Parliament, state legislatures, and the Delhi legislative assembly, was introduced by the government on Tuesday in the Lok Sabha. A supplementary list of business included the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Eighth Amendment) Bill, 2023, for presentation in the Lower House.
