Sonia Gandhi wrote a letter to PM Modi urging support to pass Women Reservation Bill in Lok Sabha. Today, the Congress leader Sonia Gandhi attempted to send a strong message on women empowerment by asking the central government to pass Women’s Reservation Bill in the Parliament. In 2010, the Women Reservation Bill act was passed by the Rajya Sabha during the period of UPA government. It is a part of outreach for women across India and the victory for Congress president and the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi. Perhaps the Manmohan Singh government bill was not passed in the Lok Sabha because of the stiff opposition faced from parties including Samajwadi Party, Trinamool Congress, and Rashtriya Janata Dal.

The Women Reservation act bill was pending since then and now as per the reports, Congress president asked PM Modi to pass a bill in the parliament. The Congress president Sonia Gandhi came into limelight with a stark message on women empowerment just ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The government of PM Modi had empowered women economically along with many acts, bills, Yojana and schemes that support women. And the recent example of this is Triple talaq ban that raises the power of women. So, in the rake of this Sonia Gandhi asked PM Modi to pass women reservation bill in the parliament.
