Victory for social justice


Narendra Modi in Madhya Pradesh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi called the passage of the Constitutional (124th Amendment) Bill “a victory for social justice”. The Rajya Sabha today passed the constitutional amendment bill to give 10 percent reservation in education and government jobs for ‘economically weak’ people across castes and religions. Soon after the passage of the bill, the Prime Minister said that he is glad to see such widespread support for the Bill.
The Prime Minister claimed that the bill “ensures a wider canvas for our Yuva Shakti to showcase their prowess and contribute towards India’s transformation”. PM Modi alleged that the passage of the bill is a tribute to the makers of the Constitution and the great freedom fighters. Delighted the Rajya Sabha has passed The Constitution (One Hundred And Twenty-Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2019.
On 10th jan 2019, the Upper House passed the Constitution (124th Amendment) Bill with an overwhelming majority. On 8th jan 2019, the Lok Sabha had passed the same bill with virtually all parties supporting it despite the opposition calling the proposed law a pre-poll ‘stunt’ of the Modi government. On 7th jan 2019, the government had extended the proceedings of Rajya Sabha by a day to ensure the passage of the bill. The decision (to extend the proceedings) came after the government approved a 10 percent job and education quota for “economically weaker” sections, meeting a key demand of upper castes.
