Ahead of the coming 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Chief Minister MK Stalin said on Saturday that the INDIA Alliance is not just an election alliance but a policy alliance and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government will not remain in the centre after the 2024 polls.
Speaking at the Women’s Rights conference organised by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in Chennai’s Nandanam YMCA ground, Stalin said that after the 2024 elections, the BJP will not remain in the centre.
“After the 2024 elections, the Modi government will not remain in the centre. INDIA alliance is not just an election alliance but a policy alliance. The Central Government is doing a political conspiracy against women from backward communities,” Stalin said.
Further speaking on the women’s reservation bill, Stalin said that the government presented this bill with a hidden motive to ensure 33 per cent reservation for women but limiting it to population census and delimitation for its implementation.
“All religions should get equal rights and whatever we need should be given equally to everyone,” Stalin added.
Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, speaking at DMK’s Women’s Rights Conference in Chennai on Saturday, said that until the Women’s Reservation Bill gets implemented, the fight for it will continue.
“The Women’s Reservation Bill has been passed. But it still has a long way to go. And when the bill will be implemented is our question. We are going to fight for it till we don’t get it,” Sonia Gandhi said.
Sonia Gandhi also participated in the Women’s Rights Conference organized by DMK at Nandanam YMCA Ground in Chennai.
“It was a vital step towards the reservation of a similar one-third of seats in the legislative bodies which the Congress pioneered in Parliament and outside. Now the Women’s Reservation Bill has finally been passed due to our relentless persistence and efforts—of all of us, not just the Congress. However, as we all know, there is still a long way to go,” she said.
While addressing a session of the Women’s Rights conference organized by DMK in Chennai’s Nandanam YMCA ground, Supriya Sule said that the state of Maharashtra is also fighting like the way Tamil Nadu resists the “cooperative federalism” in the country.
“Right now, the way the invasion from Delhi which is attacking the cooperative federalism of this country – the way Tamil Nadu is fighting, so are we fighting in Maharashtra. Unitedly, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra will make sure that nobody will go against our cooperative federalism and take away our rights from us,” she said.
