Chandigarh: Now in Haryana, women will get 50 percent reservation in Panchayati Election. The Haryana Government has given in-principle approval to this decision. Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala informed the government’s decision in a press conference in Chandigarh on Thursday. Dushyant said that due to 50% reservation for women in Panchayati Raj Institutions, rural development will be faster and women empowerment will also increase.
Let us know that the Haryana government is constantly doing new experiments for the Panchayati elections. Haryana was the first state in the country where a condition of educational qualification was imposed for panchayat elections. An educational qualification limit was set for all, whether female or male. However, it was also opposed and the matter reached the court. The Supreme Court also approved the Haryana Government’s decision. After this, there are educated educated people’s representatives in all panchayats in Haryana and this is the reason why the development work at the lower level has increased significantly.
Legislation will be made as soon as the bill is passed on the floor of the assembly
In continuation of this connection, the Haryana government has now decided to give 50 percent reservation to women in the Panchayati elections. All the leaders in the coalition government agree to this decision and a bill related to reservation will be brought in the next session of the Haryana Legislative Assembly which is called the Massoon Session. This law will be made as soon as the bill is passed on the floor of the assembly and women will benefit from this reservation in the next elections that are to be held in February 2021.
Scooty will be given to 100 women representatives
Women have 50 percent reservation in Panchayati elections in almost two-thirds of the country. This arrangement is already there in the neighboring states of Haryana. Now the Haryana government has also decided to implement. With this, Haryana government is going to give scooty to 100 women representatives to empower women representatives and encourage them. In collaboration with a private automobile company, 100 scooters will be given to women representatives who do remarkable work.
