New Delhi: CPIM general secretary Sitaram Yechury hit out at the centre for “tokenism and gimmickry” on Women's day on sunday, and sought to know why the women's reservation bill was not tabled in parliament yet.

The comments come as Prime minister Narendra Modi announced to hand over all his social media accounts to women as part of International women's day.

 

"Women's Day is not just about one day. Its revolutionary origins for equal wages and rights are a powerful and important reinforcer of those who hold up half the sky,” Yechury tweeted.

Modi had on Tuesday said he would be handing over his accounts on various social media platforms to women who inspire.
