With the passing of Women Reservation Bill, Therie urges Naga women to prepare for elections

DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 23 (MExN): Former Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president, K Therie on Saturday welcomed the Women Reservation Bill and espoused hope that the bill will come into effect by next State Assembly Elections and 2029 parliamentary elections. 

Claiming that the Congress has initiated women reservation and remain constant on its commitment, Therie hoped and believed that more women participation will change the political equations altogether. 

“The State Assemblies and Parliament need natural essence in shaping policies and in planning for the welfare of the people. We are tired of rogue, silly and hate speeches. We can communicate diplomatically without provoking but with honour and love,” the former NPCC president noted. 

Also stating that women in the State must now prepare at all levels, especially for ULBs and the State Assembly in the forthcoming elections, Therie remarked that women must now attend public meetings to understand the ongoing situations. 

To become a lawmaker, one is expected to understand the art of governing in imparting justice, equality, welfare and in safeguarding the fundamental rights of citizens. I convey my best wishes to womenfolk in the days to come, Therie stated.
