Kavitha Kalvakuntla Demands Women’s Quota

Friday, January 11th, 2019, 03:35:50 PM IST

Nizamabad MP Kavitha Kalvakuntla spoke out about the pending women’s reservation bill.

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi leader took to Twitter last night and posted “If the WomenReservation Bill could be passed with the same speed with which the bill on economically weaker sections/general category reservations has been passed in both the houses, our country would be truly progressive. We need more political will behind Reservation for Women.”

Kavitha Kalvakutla’s timing of raising the issue of women’s reservation comes days before her father and Telangana CM KCR declares members of his Cabinet.

In KCR’s previous term as Chief Minister of Telangana, there were no women ministers. We will have to see if Kavitha’s demands for more women in Cabinet will be fulfilled during this term.
