Actors and filmmakers from the Hindi film industry have whole-heartedly welcomed the Supreme Court ruling Monday allowing women make-up artists and hairdressers to finally become members of professional associations.
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi claimed that second RSS chief MS Golvalkar was against giving voting rights to women, and Narendra Modi, whose ideology is similar to the Sangh, would not take up the issue of women empowerment if voted to power.
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that on one hand Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi talks of women empowerment, and on the other, he taps their phones and stalks them with the help of the Gujarat Police.
With great power comes great responsibility. But sadly that isn`t the case with Congress party vice president Rahul Gandhi. He wields absolute power over the party, and to a large extent over the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government as well, but he seldom has come forward to shoulder a responsibility or play the role of a minister.
At a time when the UPA government is determined to push through the Women Reservation Bill during the ongoing winter session of Parliament, comes the shocking news of abysmally low participation of women candidates in the electoral process.
