Reservation for women against Naga customary laws?
Nagaland State Commission for Women (NSCW) has said that it was dismayed over recent state assembly resolution which rejected 33 per cent reservation of seats for women in municipal bodies.
In a statement here, NSCWC said it was at a loss for words on hearing the outright rejection of 33 per cent quota for women in the civic bodies.
The resolution, adopted by the assembly unanimously, said that the 74th constitutional amendment which entails 33 per cent quota for women in urban local bodies was against the Naga customary laws and practices, hence the provision is not applicable under the Article 371 (A) of the constitution, a special provision for Nagaland.
