    BRS MLC Kavitha wrote a letter to Congress President Sonia Gandhi criticizing the party’s stance on women’s reservation in employment. Kavitha raised concerns about a new GO introduced in Telangana on February 10, which she believes would unfairly impact OBC, SC, and ST women. This move has sparked controversy and worries about its effects on women’s rights and job opportunities.

    In her letter, Kavitha mentioned the historical context of women’s reservation in India, referring to GEO No. 41 and 56 issued in 1996, which provided 33.3 percent reservation for women in employment. She also highlighted the importance of the Indira Sawhni judgment by the Supreme Court in 1992, which established horizontal reservation with roster points for women to ensure effective implementation of social reservations.

    The letter discussed recent changes in Telangana, where the Congress government canceled GO No. 41 and 56 and introduced GEO 3, raising concerns about its impact on women’s job prospects. The sudden withdrawal of a petition in the High Court without consultation raised alarms about the government’s commitment to women’s rights and equal employment access.

    Kavitha stressed the significance of maintaining reservations to empower women and provide equal opportunities in the workforce. She called on the Congress, as a national party, to take a clear stand on the issue and address the concerns raised by her and others affected by the new reservation policy.
