Question:

Like in Panchayats, should we not have at least one-third seats in the parliament and assemblies reserved for women?

Answer:

One-third of the seats are reserved for women in the Panchayats, but unfortunately even today representation of women in the State Assemblies and Parliament is very low. Women constitute 50 per cent of our society, so we need to reserve at least one-third seats in the Assemblies and the Parliament for women. This helps them to uplift their status in society.
