New Delhi: Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLC and Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao's daughter K Kavitha on Friday launched a hunger strike at Jantar Mantar in the national capital demanding the introduction of the Women's Reservation Bill in the current Budget session of Parliament.
The sit-in dharna at Jantar Mantar is being attended by opposition parties and women organisations who have supported the Women's Reservation Bill from across India.
Addressing a gathering, Kavitha said this Bill will help in the development of the nation and requested the central government to introduce the Bill in Parliament.
"Women's Reservation bill is important and we need to bring it soon. I promise all women this protest will not stop until the bill is introduced. This Bill will help in the development of the nation. I request the BJP-led central government to introduce this Bill in parliament," she said.
Earlier on Thursday Kavitha said that 18 parties have confirmed their participation in the protest.
The protest will also witness programmes like plays and songs.
The BRS leader's hunger strike comes a day before her quizzing by ED in connection with the Delhi excise policy case. (with ANI inputs)
