Kapil Sibal, a Rajya Sabha MP, has raised questions about the BJP's delayed action on the Women's Reservation Bill. According to Sibal, the reason for the delay is probably the 2024 elections. He has claimed that if the government doesn't provide quota for OBC women, the BJP might lose Uttar Pradesh in 2024. Sibal's comments come amid speculation that the Women's Reservation Bill may be brought in Parliament. The bill proposes 33% reservation for women in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies. The bill was first introduced in 1996 but has not been passed yet. The bill has been a long-standing demand of women's rights activists in India.#kapilsibal #womenreservationbill #loksabha #bjp #parliament
