Businessmen are also ahead in reserved women's seats, Sujan's analysis

Dilip Kumar Sarkar, central coordinator of Sujan, presented the information in the press conference. He said that 37.33 percent of MPs elected from general constituencies earn more than Rs.1 crore, but this rate is 4 percent among MPs from reserved constituencies. Here the income disparity between MPs from general seats and reserved seats can be seen.

Out of 50 MPs elected in reserved women seats, 30 (60 per cent) are postgraduates (2 with PhD), 8 (16 per cent) graduates, 4 (8 per cent) HSC, 5 (10 per cent) SSC and 3 (6 percent) with educational qualification less than SSC.

Badiul Alam Majumder, editor of Sujon, said in a press conference that reserved seats for women are positive for women's political empowerment. But now there is a question about how much women are being empowered in reality. He also said that if political empowerment was done through women's seats, women would have elected from general seats later. Now in most cases merit is not the main consideration in nomination to reserved seats for women. The nomination was given as a favor to the party chief.
