Nitish’s woman love

October 12 2015

Nitish Kumar is patting himself on the back saying that his party has paid special attention to women’s reservation and the municipality and panchayat elections are a proof of that. But when it comes to women’s partnership in Assembly, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, Nitish cuts a contradictory picture. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, out of the 39 JD-U seats, Nitish gave only two to women. If you look at the Rajya Sabha, the JD-U has 12 Parliamentarians there, but none of them are women; neither was a woman nominated for these posts. In the 2010 Assembly elections, the JD-U handed over a party ticket to only 16 women candidates from a total of 142 seats. This time in 2015, only 25 women candidates are contesting the Assembly elections from the Mahagathbandhan, which is a coalition of the JD-U, the RJD and the Congress. Nothing but lollipops for women, Mr Nitish Kumar?
