New Delhi, Aug 20 (ANI): Congress Party president Sonia Gandhi today asserted that her party will make sure to get the Women’s Reservation Bill passed in parliament. Speaking at the occasion of her husband Rajiv Gandhi’s 70th birth anniversary here, Sonia Gandhi said, “Even if we are in opposition now, we will not rest until we get the Women Reservation’s Bill passed in Parliament.” “Rajiv Gandhi always wanted 33 percent reservation for women in parliament and assembly, although some parties opposed, and hence, we couldn’t get it passed,” Sonia added. She stressed on the fact that former PM Rajiv Gandhi used to say that no country could progress by ignoring half of the population, and also added that he worked for championing the rights of women in the country. Several functions are being held across the country to remember the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s 70th birth anniversary.
