NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has described the Women’s Reservation Bill 2023 as BJP’s new gimmick for the 2024 election, calling it “Mahila Bewkoof Banao” bill.

Senior AAP leader and Delhi minister Atishi stated that PM Modi and the BJP are bringing this Bill just before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections to befool women of the country.

According to the provisions of the bill, the reservation will only be implemented after the census and then the delimitation, which means that women will not get reservations in the 2024 elections.

She further stated in the press conference that consequently, the BJP’s grandiose plan for women’s reservation will not come into effect until 2027-28. It is clear from the provisions of the bill that the BJP is attempting to deceive the women of the country by befooling them in the name of reservation just to gain votes in the 2024 elections.

Atishi questioned, “Why can’t PM Modi provide reservations to women in the 2024 elections without waiting for the census and delimitation? If he truly cares about women, why doesn’t he implement the bill on the existing 543 seats in the Lok Sabha?”

She argued that PM Modi and the BJP are not genuinely concerned about women’s welfare. “The BJP is a party of people like Brij Bhushan and is anti-women,” she said.

Atishi concluded by demanding an amendment to the Women’s Reservation Bill and urged the government not to wait for the census and delimitation. She stressed that reservations for women should be implemented starting from the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

The leader mentioned, “This is because, some time ago, the 128th Constitutional Amendment Bill related to this Bill was posted in the public domain by the central government. Upon studying it, we realized that it was nothing but a political move before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. It is, in essence, a ‘Mahila Bewkoof Banao’ bill.”

“When we examine the provisions of this bill, it becomes clear that it is an attempt to deceive the women of the country and befool them ahead of the 2024 elections,” she concluded.
