Gandhi has also assured PM Modi of her party’s support in the passage of the bill to become a law.

"The Congress party has always and will continue to support this legislation which will be a significant step forward in the empowerment of women, " she wrote.

She further wrote that: "I am writing to request you to take advantage of your majority in the Lok Sabha to now get the Women’s Reservation Bill passed in the Lower House as well."
