Women’s Bill moved in Rajya Sabha amid pandemonium

The landmark Women’s Reservation Bill was moved for consideration in the Rajya Sabha on Monday amidst unprecedented scenes of pandemonium.

While some members, including the RJD’s Rajniti Prasad, tore the copy of the Bill, Kamal Akhtar and Nand Kishore Yadav of the SP and some others tried to reach the Chair raising slogans against the Bill.

The SP and the RJD members tried to uproot the mike on the table of the Chairman and threw the stationery placed on it.

The security attendants immediately swung into action and shielded the Chairman to prevent the agitated members from climbing on the table.

The unprecedented pandemonium was witnessed as soon as Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily moved for consideration of the Bill which provides for 33 per cent reservation for women in Lok Sabha and State Assemblies.
