Women played an imperative role in realization of Telangana state unquestionably. Taking the issue up to the Parliament was one step and passing the bill in either house was another step. Almost everyone involved in Telangana agitation may claim the credit of tabling the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill 2013 in the Parliament. Nevertheless, the credit of passing the ibid bill in either house was a herculean task.
The entire show was in the hands of four women who grabbed the attention of the entire world. They are none other than Sonia Gandhi, the UPA Chairperson; Sushma Swaraj, the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha; Meira Kumar, the Speaker of Lok Sabha; and Mayawati, the supremo of Bahujan Samajvadi Party.
Such a historic and crucial Bill could have not been passed in either house without the active and premeditated involvement of these women. Coincidentally, women held crucial portfolios in 15th Lok Sabha. The virtual floor leader Sonia Gandhi, leader of opposition Sushma Swaraj and the Speaker of Lok Sabha, Meira Kumar all are women. In the history of Lok Sabha, Meira Kumar is the first ever woman speaker. It’s a good indication as far as the democratic India is concerned.
While addressing her farewell speech, the Speaker of Lok Sabha felt that there should have been more women in the house. When the women have shown their power in passing such a crucial bill like Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill 2013, that day in Indian Parliamentary history is not far away when women members will be the majority of the house. Let’s wish the day is imminent.
