Women Reservation Bill against The Constitution?

Posted on: June 6, 2009


women empowerment

By 26th of November 2009, it will be 60 (Sixty) years since we enacted The Constitution of India. What has changed during these 60 years that calls the immediate necessity of “EMPOWERING” women NOW than that of early forties? Even the prominent women leaders who were in the Constituent Assembly like Sarojini Naidu, Hansa Mehta, Durgabai Deshmukh, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur etc did not find the need of special consideration for women during those days!

I believe the Women Reservation Bill is absolutely against The Constitution of India and will clearly violate Article 325 of the same. For your kind perusal I’m pasting it here

“There shall be one general electoral roll for every
territorial constituency for election to either House of
Parliament or to the House or either House of the
Legislature of a State and no person shall be ineligible
for inclusion in any such roll or claim to be included
in any special electoral roll for any such constituency
on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex or any of
them.”

This Bill will directly take away the basic right of a MALE candidate to contest in elections. More over, this is 100% against the fundamental concept of Democracy where the choice of people is in jeopardy.

13(2) The State shall not make any law which takes away
or abridges the rights conferred by this Part and any law
made in contravention of this clause shall, to the extent of
the contravention, be void.

1[(4) Nothing in this article shall apply to any
amendment of this Constitution made under article 368.]

Based on this, Constitution (Seventy-fourth Amendment) Act, 1992 also took away the fundamental right to equality of a Male candidate to contest in election, and is going to repeat in the Women Reservation Bill as well.

i would say, what you pointed out are awesome. Any kid would get startled with the over ambitious govt to empower the women with reservations; its clear that actual agenda is hidden behind the scenes. What is visible to the public so far is when ever a special provision is given to whatever class or creed, it has got abused and misused. Even after 60 years of independance India is still a Thrid World country just because we are not run and ruled by the competent and efficient but the reserved.

Sonia Gandhi and the likes including several male politicians are doing it for their short term gain. They are not concerned whether their act violates basic structure of constitution or not, they are interested for their petty gains.

Brain Drain has caused so much loss to the country and one of the primary reason for Brain Drain is the Reservation Policy.

The politicians knows the harmful effect of reservation yet would not abrogate the wrong policy b’cause it suits their interest.

This 33% reservation for women will be harmful for the country in the long run just as THE RESERVATION POLICY for Govt. Job.

Their must be strong protest from the public and scholars too and not just from Sharad Yadav, MP who being a Politician can change his stance anytime for his vested interest.
