West Bengal: TMC first party to ensure increased participation of women in politics

News Desk: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s theory of providing 40% seats in Uttar Pradesh elections for women has come under TMC criticism.

From it’s official tweeter handle, the TMC today morning tweeted

“Under the visionary leadership of @MamataOfficial, AITC has shown the way to ensure increased participation of women in politics, in this country. We’re the first party to give 40% seats to women in LS elections! (1/2)

Amid such dire times, @INCIndia is understandably trying to emulate and one can only hope that this is genuine and not tokenism. If they are to be taken seriously, they must give 40% seats to women in States other than UP as well. (2/2)”

TMC General Secretary Kunal Ghosh tweeted “Priyanka Gandhi was unaware of Mamata’s move, TMC has given women representation of more than 50 per cent much before. In 2019 and in other elections TMC representation of women was more than 50%”

In his tweet, he advised that in women issues Mamata should be the one whom others should follow.
