Announcement will be made in Chintan Shivir!
Senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid said that the promise of giving reservation to women was fulfilled, but there were problems in it due to which we were not able to fulfill it. Now we have added that easy tax and many other aspects. Apart from this, Congress leader Shailja Kumari said that now its time has come. Its official announcement will be made in Udaipur Chintan Shivir after the seal of CWC to be held tomorrow.
Party leader K Raju told the media that, it has also been decided to convene a special session of the working committee once in every six months for the weaker sections in the party and organizational reforms will be introduced for social justice and empowerment. Along with this, reservation in private sector, OBC reservation in Parliament and Legislative Assemblies and caste-based quota in women’s reservation will be demanded.
New council will also be formed in Congress
The party believes that this will be a big step for the party in the 2024 general elections. According to K Raju, caste based census should be done at the national level and SC, ST and OBC can get the benefit of reservation in private sector as well. Also, there should be separate provision for women belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the Women’s Reservation Bill.
