Last night , 8th of March, Cho Ramasamy had been asked by the TV channel Times Now, with regard to his opinion about the Women's Reservation Bill in Parliament , for he answered that if allowed to pass , only nepotism will follow in allotting the seats for the women, it would be either the daughter, wife, daughter in law,so on so on.
Now question remains before us very seriously , what is happening in Men contesting the seats; does not the same party allowing the family members in various places and even make them Ministers. So nepotism as a word used for blocking the bill is irrelevant and any move in a democracy like India will not be tolerated by the feudal mindset of people who soaked in the past and think as if their's is the only perspective which is always correct.
Come what may , we can always alter like the Law is amended, mended and sometimes ended; this bill should be passed. If we go back to history , first even Indians were discriminated, on the basis of caste, community,religion etc; females even did not have the right of franchise. Even today despite the tall talk on the constitutional equality, Dalits are not independently working without being dominated by other communities of the region.
This is not a caste debate, and India is not going to die with individuals who pass judgement on this bill; any move in good cause will be opposed, and hurdles created , but ultimately this gender bias should end.So this is a great move in parliament which should be passed , otherwise future generation will spit on the faces of those who oppose right now owing to various reasons.
That too the behavior of present parliamentarians shouting and interrupting the proceeding with vocal and muscle power is so disgusting , instead of using the brain power, all the ignoramuses , to put up a show go near the podium of the Speaker and continue the shouting wasting every paisa of the hard earned money of every Indian.
Former Speaker Mr.Somnath Chatterjee, is an example of how a responsible man felt so deeply in his heart about the behavior of the present day parliamentarians.
First allow the bill to be passed, people are watching, more intelligent people than parliamentarians and intellects watching what is happening in Parliament. The Mulayam and Lalu are not India.Besides these two are more brawny than brainy is the fact of History.
Cho Ramasamy is encased in an orthodox cocoon, no longer relevant to the present generation and neither he is a Bhismacharya on everything and anything. His gender bias is well know if one follows his track record.
May God help this Bill to be passed, and let us see what changes needed when the process runs on its own.
Another argument against rotation system of the Bill is , if so , the present parliamentarian , that is male, shall not develop the welfare measures or will not concentrate on the developmental activity of the constituency which elected him-- this is not a Zamindari system where as if traditionally some one will take care of his area.If at all parties interested to retain the constituency , let them develop or that seat will be grabbed by the opposition which is interested in that area. So development or nurturing the constituency argument is based on selfishness, may be known more to politicians rather than the common man.
Common man needs betterment in all spheres regardless of who , whether he or she is the representative.Why first of all everyone shouts from roof tops before a move is made.Are we not a democracy , where gender equality is of prime concern for everyone.When it comes to your own daughter and wife, you use a different yardstick, if a woman is some other, another yardstick. Why so?
