Men's Rights activists oppose Women's Bill

In the name of Women Empowerment, the Bill would infringe upon the choice of citizens to elect their representative and on the choice of men to contest elections, which is against the Article 14 of Indian Constitution, they maintained.

The Association alleged that the political parties are not in favour of providing seats to the women candidates though they had performed better in the previous Lok Sabha Elections.
None of the major political parties gave more than 10 per cent of their seats to women in 2009 general election.  

"We are not against women contesting election, but we are against women reservations that hamper men’s right to contest and chose," said Mithun Kumar, member of the association.
