In the recent assembly elections held, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) emerged into a new political power, standing as a page-turner in the country politics. With the motto of development with a balance of new age politics, Kejriwal stood as inspiration for many young politicians. However, Kejriwal’s cabinet which was observed to be filled with young blood has been facing a setback.
Expressing her concern over the Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet, National Commission for Women (NCW) Chairperson Rekha Sharma wrote to the Delhi government. The letter took significance as the women activist raised concerns over the women representation in Delhi’s cabinet. In her letter to Kejriwal, Rekha requested the Chief Minister to consider inducting women legislators into his governance.
“Various kinds of equality, including political equality, political equality, political leadership and power-sharing is one of the most basic, intrinsically valuable as it is the key to equality on other realms, and all citizens are supposed to be given equal representation and leadership irrespective of gender,” read her letter. While Kejriwal stood as an example for new age politics, we have to wait and see if heeds to Rekha’s suggestion.
