President, Pranab Mukherjee said that the government is committed to provide the 33 percent reservation to women in Parliament and State Assemblies.
At the same time, there is also the planning to save the girls and to start the education campaign. The President said that if anyone do violence against the women, it is not tolerable. There is the adoption of zero tolerance policy for this.
He also said to strengthen the justice system. Although, this is the seventh government to raise the quotas for women in the last two decades.
This bill was presented in the first term of the UPA, but failed to pass. It is still waiting to get permission from the Lok Sabha.
