Sep, 19, 2023 CNI News: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday praised the Union cabinet’s purported decision to accept the Women’s Reservation Bill for debate in parliament, calling it a “great step.”

Taking to X , Mufti wrote, ”“Having navigated the rough terrain of a predominantly male political landscape myself, I am happy to see that finally the Women Reservation bill will become a reality. Despite constituting half of the population, we are grossly underrepresented. It’s a great step.”

On Monday, Prahlad Singh Patel announced on the social networking platform X that the Cabinet had passed the women’s reservation bill. However, he quickly removed the post.

Though there was no official confirmation on what happened during the lengthy Cabinet meeting on Monday that lasted over 90 minutes, rumours that the women’s reservation law had been adopted were rife.
