Amit Shah’s jab to a congressman, “Can Men Not Speak Up For Women”

After Sonia Gandhi, the leader of the Congress Parliamentary Party, spoke in the Lok Sabha about the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniam, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey got up to speak.

Home Minister Amit Shah poked fun at Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Wednesday after he cut off BJP lawmaker Nishikant Dubey’s remarks on the women’s reservation bill by getting up to speak.

After Sonia Gandhi, the leader of the Congress Parliamentary Party, spoke in the Lok Sabha about the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniam, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey got up to speak.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and other opposition MPs caused a brief uproar in the House by insisting that the Government should have chosen a female MP to speak.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury was criticized by Amit Shah for interfering with Dubey’s speech and for possibly being “jealous” since he did not get to speak first.

“I want to ask Adhir Ranjan ji, can men not stand up for women, or will only women care about women? Which type of society do you hope to create? Brothers should be proactive when it comes to women’s issues and their welfare. This nation has a tradition of doing that. Everyone has the right to consider the welfare of women. What was Chowdhury’s objection when Nishikant ji stepped up from our side to speak? He might be feeling a little envious because he wasn’t given the opportunity to speak first, Amit Shah suggested.

Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal had previously moved for the bill’s passage in the House.

On Tuesday, at Lok Sabha’s maiden meeting in the new Parliament building, the measure was introduced.

The bill’s discussion was started by Sonia Gandhi, who also pledged the support of her party and called for its swift passage.

She claimed that putting off the bill’s implementation would be unfair to the nation’s women.
